欢迎来到 ArtsWinthrop—the leading College for the Arts in the Carolinas.

The disciplines within ArtsWinthrop have been a central component of Winthrop's commitment to the 艺术s for well over 一个世纪. In fact, we are one of only 37 universities in the United States and the only public or private institution in South Carolina with all of its undergraduate and graduate 艺术s programs — 剧院, 跳舞, 音乐, fine 艺术s and 设计 — nationally accredited. As the only comprehensive collegiate 艺术s program nationally accredited in all the 艺术s in the State of South Carolina, public or private, the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Winthrop University offers majors in 艺术, 设计, 音乐, 剧院, 跳舞 and teacher certification in 艺术, 音乐, 剧院, 跳舞.

ArtsWinthrop, consisting of a student body of 700 enrolled in a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate professional degree and liberal 艺术s programs, provides demanding instruction in an interdisciplinary environment that inspires and prepares the next generation of responsible citizens of the creative class — the makers, performers, 设计ers, educators, influencers. We have over 50 full-time faculty as well as p艺术-time teachers, all practicing professionals from the surrounding metropolitan area.

The college provides a vast array of outstanding performances and 艺术 exhibitions :每年

  • More than 100 音乐 performances annually, most of which are free of charge and open to the public;

  • Regularly produced 剧院 and 跳舞 performances featuring student work, main stage productions, smaller studio and experimental performances; and

  • Art galleries that regularly present professionally curated exhibitions, student-centered exhibitions, and educational programs that celebrate 艺术istic achievement and creative excellence.

Our proximity to the metro Charlotte area offers our students opportunities to draw upon the many 艺术s resources of a major metropolitan area — and we've established strong relationships with museums, galleries, 跳舞 companies, 剧院 organizations, orchestras, 设计 firms, many other 艺术s institutions. The facilities we provide on campus include advanced technology studios in all the 艺术s, contemporary 跳舞 studios, traditional and experimental 剧院 spaces, an unparalleled 音乐 conservatory, and studios in the diverse disciplines of the visual 艺术s.
