Music + Theatre Offerings

Put your academics in the spotlight

Many Blugolds strive to turn a passion into a career, which is exactly what being a part of the music and theatre arts department can do. You can learn to compose, educate others and perform at your highest level. Work closely with our committed faculty to do creative research or travel abroad to learn more from our friends overseas. Allow your education to take center stage and embrace all of the opportunities this department offers.

The department of music and theatre arts is the reason I call UWEC home. The staff genuinely cares about my success and the students have become lifelong friends. I cannot imagine who I would be without the talented and inspiring individuals who make up this facet of the university and encourage me to do what I love.
