Imagine. Innovate. Inspire.
True innovation in arts education comes from a combination of a liberal arts foundation, personal attention from renowned practicing artists, and opportunities for performance, internships, and community outreach.
Jordan College of the Arts (JCA) students are challenged from their first days on campus to embrace their individuality and learn their art. Add collaborative partnerships and personalized experiences and students are primed to practice and create their best work.
Through it all, we create the new artist-citizen. Those who will inspire the evolution of the arts—making our communities, economies, culture, and people better for it.
