There is More to You Than Your Major
As a Hartt student, you receive a world-class performing arts education and have the opportunity to gain so much more. Enhance your educational experience through a minor in an academic discipline outside of the performing arts, take advantage of the University’s Honors Program, or study abroad. You also have the opportunity to join nearly 100 clubs and organizations, attend Division I sporting events, take in gallery shows, or take a day trip into New York City or Boston.
Realizing Your Dreams is the Grand Finale
Hartt’s dynamic and accomplished alumni are working musicians, dancers, choreographers, actors, singers, educators, technicians, and arts administrators who have earned awards and acclaim around the country and the world.
“It is rare to find a school where the musicians and conductors are comfortable performing conservative orchestral music as well as contemporary music written within the last decade. On top of this, there is a relaxed atmosphere for learning at Hartt that encourages constructive criticism and camaraderie between colleagues and faculty. My decision to go to Hartt was one that has led me to a successful path in music, and I am glad that I chose to attend school there.”
