Welcome to the website of Arts NC State! We are glad to have you explore our offerings.

At NC State, we like to say “The Arts are for Everyone.” But we don’t just say it, we actually practice it. Any NC State student, regardless of degree program, undergraduate or graduate student, full-time or part-time, can participate in our numerous arts opportunities throughout the year.

As tens of thousands of NC State alumni have experienced, and just as many Raleigh-area residents have witnessed, Arts NC State programs are flourishing and provide performances, exhibitions and events at an extremely high level. While our students may not be majoring in the arts, many of our alumni have pursued and succeeded at arts careers. Our many noted faculty and staff offer world-class instruction and provide the finest design and back-of-house services found anywhere.

If you’re a student seeking to indulge your passion in the arts, or if you’re a community member looking to discover what will be our upcoming events, we have you covered. Feel free to explore the various websites of our arts’ departments and programs, and I look forward to seeing you at Arts NC State events.
