Students may focus their education in one of three concentrations: studio, theater, or film and photography. Courses draw on the resources of Rice’s active and accomplished faculty, extensive on-campus facilities, and Houston’s vibrant artistic community. The department boasts a state-of-the-art cinema, as well as a 500-seat proscenium-style theater. Distinguished speakers, visiting artists, film series, field trips, student exhibitions and performance opportunities all contribute to an immersive arts education that extends well beyond the classroom.
