Departments and Programs

The arts play a vital role at Holy Cross. Our student artists graduate fully prepared to enter the field upon graduation — or to lead meaningful lives in practically any other career. Our arts programs complement virtually every dimension of what students learn in other academic disciplines, and provide a lens for every Holy Cross student to discover the underlying connections that tie them together.


Creative Approaches to Common Challenges

We offer numerous academic and extracurricular opportunities that prompt students to think critically about the role human experience plays in academic and real-world settings.
