Powering the Arts
The Arts at san jose state university
The School of Music and Dance has long been known for its excellence in performance and for its leadership role within the arts community. It is with great pride and excitement that we welcome the animation, film, illustration, radio, television, and theatre programs to join music and dance in our School.
We view this new configuration as visionary with San José State making a strong commitment to the arts of the twenty-first century. In a state as culturally rich and diverse as California, new interdisciplinary opportunities among artists, performers, composers, and technology are abundant. Such artistic pluralism creates a fertile arena for experimentation and the development of new forms of art.
While planning for the future, we are constantly aware of the importance of our past traditions and history. The School continues its commitment to research, keeping scholarship and performance as our core values. Excellence in the artistic process, regardless of traditional or cutting edge technologies, remains our hallmark.
