College of Fine Arts
Be a champion for student success today!

The College of Fine Arts is the heart of performing and arts at UTRGV. It is home to the School of Art, School of Music, and Dance, Theatre, and Creative Writing departments, where we prepare our students for productive careers and life in the arts.

The UTRGV College of Fine Arts provides access to cultural events for the entire community through student plays, concerts, art exhibits, and other special events. The hours of practice and dedication it takes to accomplish such performative experiences enable students to develop their craft while pursuing an enriched higher education.

Your investment allows the College of Fine Arts to build and provide a world-class education right here in the Rio Grande Valley by evaluating new ways to enhance arts education that will benefit our students for many years to come. Your support emboldens our commitment to inspire, encourage, educate, and prepare our artists.
