The Arts at Utah State

The Caine College of the Arts provides a collaborative culture in which a unified "community of the arts" can thrive. This collaboration supports opportunities in discovery, teaching, and learning, and connections across artistic disciplines. The Caine College of the Arts brings together students and faculty for artistic study and a liberal arts education at a research university.
