FIND YOUR SPOTLIGHT.
Take the stage, capture your vision, or captivate the crowd at the University of Saint Mary!
You’ll benefit from one-on-one instruction and mentoring from accomplished artists, musicians, and theatre pros.
USM students are eligible for talent scholarships of up to $12,000 over four years, in addition to other scholarship opportunities and aid. And the best part? You don’t have to be a fine arts major.
Music and theatre talent scholarships are available to students of any major—while art talent scholarships are only available to art majors.
As an art student at USM, you will prepare for creative careers through personalized one-on-one instruction and mentoring from accomplished artists and faculty in one of three key concentration areas: Art Therapy + Graphic Design + Studio Art.
USM art students also enjoy nationally renowned guest artist presentations and shows, 24-hour studio access, and plentiful exhibition opportunities.
For Fine Arts Scholarship Day, art students should bring two or three examples of their best work. | Contact USM's Art Program director »
Music is available as both a major and a minor at USM. At the University of Saint Mary, music students develop musicianship and performance skills that prepare them for a lifetime of satisfying musical involvement.
Learn from caring and knowledgeable faculty with more than 50 years of combined teaching experience. Enjoy exceptional opportunities: Competitive performance scholarships for all students (regardless of major); private lessons with professional full-time faculty; numerous solo and ensemble performance opportunities.
For Fine Arts Scholarship Day, potential music majors (non-majors also eligible!) should be ready to perform one prepared piece or song. | Contact USM's Music Program director »
USM's hands-on theatre program offers majors the opportunity to take raw skills and mold them into exceptional talent.
Students immediately put theory to work, perfecting the art of acting, directing, producing, and stage design in both the classroom and during regular productions -- including a four-show season of main-stage productions, one-act plays, mime shows, area children's theatre tours and more.
For Fine Arts Scholarship Day, potential theatre majors (non-majors also eligible!) will interview with faculty & students. Audition of a monologue or forensics piece is optional at the event, but will eventually be required to secure a scholarship. | Contact USM's Theatre Program director »
