College of the Arts
I Want to Express Myself
With more than 60 majors, minors, and concentrations in everything from Art and Design to Theatre, from Communication to Music or Dance, you'll have lots of opportunities to express yourself in the College of the Arts.
You'll get professional training from renowned working composers, designers, fine artists, actors, musicians, directors, choreographers, conductors, and broadcasters. And, because we're just minutes from Manhattan, world-famous guest artists visit each year to share the secrets of their success.
Showcase your talents by performing in the state-of-the-art Alexander Kasser Theater or the beautiful Leshowitz Recital Hall at the John J. Cali School of Music—the only university-based music school in New Jersey—or by exhibiting your work at the George Segal Gallery.
Montclair State is one of the few universities in the country accredited in all the visual and performing arts. We meet the rigorous standards of the National Associations of Schools of Dance, Theatre, Music, and Art and Design.
