Creative and performing arts

Performing arts form an essential part of the way in which we understand ourselves and the world we live in. Whether your study focuses on screenwriting or drama, you will learn the value of thinking through making. The study of performing arts explores the role of the body in creative expression and what it means to think in a different way.
