Visual and Performing Arts
The arts are alive at Purdue University, and the Patti & Rusty Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts is at its heart. Our two departments (Art and Design and Theatre) and three divisions (Dance, Music, and Purdue Galleries) have more than 800 undergraduate majors and 60 graduate students. Our nationally ranked faculty publish, teach, produce art exhibitions, and participate in performance-related activities that contribute to the presence of arts activities on campus and in the community. Join us as we expand the realm of knowledge in the visual and performing arts.
