The E&H Division of Visual and Performing Arts has attracted students of increasing numbers and talent in recent years, a testimony to the strength of our professors in the arts and the quality of the E&H approach to liberal arts education. Each program – music, theatre and the fine arts – offers diverse academic offerings of high quality intended to not only enhance your skills but to give you a sound understanding of the important of the arts in your life, your community and your culture.
The Emory & Henry art program emphasizes individual student/faculty interaction that ultimately leads to a mentor relationship. This unique feature makes the Emory & Henry art program a success. At every point, faculty members emphasize serious critical thinking about visual arts problem-solving.
The Music Department seeks to provide opportunities for students to grow into independent, informed, and creative musicians who will serve as advocates for our art in and out of the music profession. Our graduates have gone on to great success as professional performers and teachers at all levels. Because music is an integral part of the social fabric of the E&H community, we hope that you will join us and make music a part of your E&H experience.
The mission of the E&H Theatre Department is to provide students with rigorous pre-professional theatre training within the context of a traditional liberal arts college education. The degree options offered by the Theatre Department are designed to equip students with the skills required to succeed in the professional theatre, graduate school, and a wide range of vocations.
