Maryville College is ideally situated in Maryville, Tenn. Known for its academic rigor and its focus on the liberal arts, Maryville is where students come to stretch their minds, stretch themselves and learn how to make a difference in the world
The purpose of the art program is to introduce, encourage and strengthen skills, attitudes and knowledge that enable students to become creators, caretakers and advocates of the arts. The Major and Minor in Design provides guided instruction and discourse in design process, principles, elements, creativity, problem-based solutions and develops a strong visual literacy and criticism of the role and impact of design in a global society.
Located in the new Clayton Center for the Arts, the Maryville College Music Department offers a comprehensive, NASM-accredited music curriculum within the acclaimed Maryville College liberal arts experience. The theatre program stresses the intrinsic value of a broad study of theatre within the liberal arts tradition, affording students a sound basis in all areas of theatre production, including acting; directing; design; stagecraft; dramatic literature; and theatre history.
