The School of Music
Music is life at Millikin. Our accomplished faculty will show you that dreams and reality aren’t so far apart as they play alongside you, learn with you, and help develop the talent you’ve only begun to tap into!
Millikin's School of Theatre and Dance is a nationally-recognized program, offering conservatory style training rooted in a liberal arts education. Our students learn by practicing their craft at a high level throughout their training, with and for successful practitioners including our faculty, staff, alums and theatre professionals across the industry.
Here in the Art Department, we offer a wide range of experiences ranging from techniques employed in computer art and design, to the immersion in various studio practices of creation and critique. Through it all, we make an effort to connect the theoretical to the practical through lectures, exhibitions, studio practice, seminars and internships. We invite you to come and see what we are doing.
