The College of Fine Arts hosts a talented faculty and staff dedicated to expanding the minds and skills of students through fully accredited programs and state-of-the-art facilities. We offer a balance of high professional standards and rigorous, current
educational practice, and an emphasis—on stage, in the studio, and in class—on a culturally and ethnically diverse world of art. That is what students can expect from the College of Fine Arts at IUP.
In addition to the new IUP Performing Arts Center, the College of Fine Arts maintains Waller Hall, a state-of-the-art theater facility housing two performance spaces, offices, classrooms, and technical studios. Home to the
Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance, the department also maintains a dance performance theater in Zink Hall.
Fisher Auditorium, connected to Waller Hall via the Performing Arts Center, maintains an art-deco style historic theater seating 1,460, plus dressing rooms,
rehearsal space, offices, and full technical facilities.
Sprowls Hall is home to the
Art and Design Department and contains a variety of offices, galleries, and studios, including the Wood Center at IUP. Large, modern studios for ceramics and sculpture
for art students are located in the Robertshaw Building. Cogswell Hall houses the
Music Department, completely renovated and expanded in 2007. The building boasts a large music library, state-of-the-art classrooms, ample practice rooms, large ensemble
rehearsal halls, and numerous studio and specialized classroom spaces. IUP has the distinction of being an All-Steinway School.
