Get Started

VCUarts is widely recognized as one of the nation’s great schools of the arts and design, with more than 3,000 students from 20 countries and 38 states.

Here, artists become part of a thriving community, collaborating with faculty members known across the world. Visiting professors bring real-world guidance and insight into the learning experience. And students are able to reach across disciplines, to work on projects that fuse interests to solve problems.

So a graphic design student might work on a special education project. Fashion designers might join forces with VCU Medical Center. Sculpture students might help create a new bike rack design. The journey is up to you, and the possibilities are unlimited.
