Overview

The Claire Trevor School of the Arts is one of the nation’s most acclaimed and innovative centers for the creation, performance, and study of the arts within the context of their history and theory. The School consists of four departments, including Art, Dance, Drama, and Music, offering undergraduate B.A., B.F.A., and B.M. degrees, and M.F.A. degrees in all four disciplines. The Drama Department offers a doctorate in Drama and Theatre, jointly with UC San Diego. The Music Department offers a doctorate in Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology (ICIT). The Art Department also offers minors in Digital Arts and Digital Filmmaking.

The School’s departments are located near each other in the Arts Plaza, providing possibilities for daily interaction among students and faculty in all Arts disciplines. Facilities in the School include studios and technologically enhanced classrooms, four theatres, a theatre/concert hall, the University Art Gallery, the Donald R. and Joan F. Beall Center for Art and Technology, the Gassman Electronic Music Studio, the Motion Capture Studio, the Arts Media Center, the Arts Computing Laboratory, the Digital Arts Teaching and Research Laboratories, a television studio, professionally managed and staffed production shops, and publicity and box offices supporting the School’s extensive production, performance, and exhibition schedule.

The Steven Ehrlich-designed Contemporary Arts Center, the latest major expansion of the School, provides 59,000 new square feet of technology-driven instructional and research spaces, as well as a new 4,000-square-foot gallery and a “black-box” performance space. Along with its new motion-capture studio, these facilities enhance the School’s and UCI’s place at the forefront of these fields.

Arts students regularly participate in dance and drama productions, choirs, instrumental ensembles, and art exhibitions. Students from other academic areas are also eligible to participate in many of these activities and are encouraged to do so. Some of the School’s productions take place in the Irvine Barclay Theatre located on the UCI campus.

The artists, performers, and scholars of the Arts faculty are regularly augmented by distinguished artist/teachers featured in numerous School activities.

Students receive assistance with program planning and a variety of other services from the professional and student-support staff in the School’s Office of Student Affairs; the staff also provide academic counseling to Arts students.

One such outreach program is Creative Connections, which provides exceptional opportunities for School of the Arts students to earn valuable practical experience in K–12 classrooms and in community settings. Projects range from integrating arts into core curriculum in K–6, to workshops in the arts for middle and high schools, to college application mentorship for high school juniors and seniors interested in arts majors.

Overview

The primary endeavor of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts is the creative act. Research activities are pursued both as an end in themselves and as a source that can inform both performance and the studio experience. The intellectual activity of theoretical, literary, and historical courses complements the practical work in studio workshops and performance. The aim of the M.F.A. programs in Art, Dance, Drama, and Music is, thus, to produce artists literate in both traditional and digital media who are disciplined, responsive to intellectual stimuli, and capable of integrating existing knowledge into creative projects. The UCI-UCSD joint doctoral program in Drama and Theatre provides opportunity for significant crossover research and teaching between the two campuses in a wide range of areas in drama and the theatre. The M.A. and Ph.D. program in Integrated Composition Improvisation and Technology (ICIT) is taught by a core faculty whose work embraces diverse forms of music making, challenging conventional distinctions between classical composition, computer music, improvisation, and jazz. It is the strong belief of the UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts that intellectual integrity and creative excellence cannot exist without each other.

Refer to the Departments of Art, Dance, Drama, and Music for detailed information about the graduate programs.
