In September 2018, Fairleigh Dickinson University inaugurated the School of the Arts, a robust center of learning for students who seek arts training grounded in a real-world framework.

School of the Arts students discover an innovative curriculum that combines a strong liberal arts education, hands-on creative work, valuable opportunities for internships, and an integrated new approach to arts entrepreneurship.

Outstanding and nationally recognized artists and authors empower our students to reach their full creative potential, and a network of professional mentors and colleagues help jump-start their careers. Our Florham Campus features a beautiful and inspiring landscape where students can collaborate across disciplines and flourish. Graduates will be equipped to thrive in today’s — and tomorrow’s — complex interconnected world.
