The Performing Arts Department (PAD) offers a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. PAD also offers minors in Music, Theatre, Film Studies, and in Costume and Fashion Design as well as courses within the New Media Studies major.

Performances take place regularly in the new Fine Arts Instructional Center (Concert Hall, DelMonte Studio Theater, Proscenium Theater) and in other on-campus spaces as well as on tour in CT, New York City, Puerto Rico, and London. The Performing Arts Department is fully committed to providing a welcoming, engaging, inspiring and enlightening program.
