The Department of Music and Theatre at FHSU is unique: big enough to offer dozens of academic and performance opportunities, but small enough that student artists don’t become faces in the crowd. We understand that your dreams are as unique as you are; we’ll help you achieve them.

We offers academic programs in theatre, music education, performance, composition, new media studies and performing arts.
