Welcome! If you're currently exploring your college options in the performing arts, you'll discover that Rhode Island College offers exceptional programs in music, theatre, and dance.
Rigorous academic majors in these areas are open to qualified students. For information on how to apply as a music, theatre, or dance major, click here.
If you don't want to major in the performing arts but want to stay involved in other ways, you can minor in music, jazz studies, theatre, or dance – or you can just participate in our ensembles and productions, which are open by audition to all RIC students regardless of academic major or minor.
