Schar School of Policy and Government

The mission of the Schar School of Policy and Government is to advance the public good.

We provide our students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to become leaders and managers in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.  These graduates apply the knowledge and skills gained in our classrooms at some of the most prestigious companies, consulting firms, nonprofits, multinational organizations, and government agencies in Washington, DC, and beyond.

Decision-makers and the public use our faculty’s research to both understand and develop policy in a variety of areas.  In addition, we are committed to public service in our professions and in regional, national, and global communities.

College of Visual and Performing Arts

The College of Visual and Performing Arts is much more than a collection of classrooms; it's a community of artists in art, dance, music, theater, arts management, film and video studies, and computer game design.

The College of Visual and Performing Arts embraces a vibrant community of artists actively learning, teaching, practicing and creating a wide variety of art forms. Through our seven academic programs, two performing arts centers, and a community arts school, we educate the artists of tomorrow and inspire people of all ages to engage in the arts as creators, consumers, and citizens.
