About Cornish College of the ArtsEdit

  • Cornish College of the Arts is an exhilarating place to be. One of only three private, nonprofit performing and visual arts colleges in the nation, Cornish offers a distinctive blend of visual and performing arts grounded in a core curriculum of humanities and sciences.
  • Cornish is a four-year college offering a Bachelor of Music degree and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in art, dance, design, theater, and performance production. We encourage students to exchange ideas, to experiment - find their unique artistic voices and share them with us in ways both innovative and traditional.
