Jordan College of the Arts is
committed to the highest quality arts education by providing
focused professional study and fostering an understanding of the
interrelatedness of all the arts. Through this integration we
develop artist-citizens who are actively engaged in the
Our five academic departments, art, arts
administration, dance, music, and theatre, focus on specific areas
of study within their fields, be it the intersection of art and
design in the Art program, Classical Ballet in the Department of
Dance, or Non-profit Arts Management in the Arts Administration
Our college arts core brings together students from all our
programs to explore the arts in the context of each other,
examining mutual influences, parallel objectives, and similar
expressions achieved by diverse means.
Through our community outreach program, the Butler Community
Arts School, one hundred Butler students teach music and other arts
to almost two thousand young people in Indianapolis, most of whom
are on scholarship.
All Jordan College of Arts students-future artist-citizens-are
involved in the arts both on campus and off, attending concerts and
exhibitions throughout Indianapolis and Central Indiana, performing
for diverse audiences at Butler and on tour, and working in arts
organizations throughout the country.
