Mission Statement

ARTS at the American University in Cairo
Film, Graphic Design, Music, Visual Arts, Theatre
Events are free of charge and public unless otherwise noted

The Department of the Arts is comprised of the Visual Cultures, Music and Theatre programs. All three programs contribute courses to the Core Curriculum. The Department of the Arts provides an education that encompasses the fine arts as a historical, cultural and social study within a liberal arts context. The curriculum strives to prepare students for the engagement of the imagination and the intellect through comprehensive analysis of theory and application of practical skills.

The integration of events programming with curriculum development and faculty research is central to the department's mission. The Department of the Arts provides public events including music concerts, art exhibitions, theatrical productions, film series and festivals for AUC and the Cairo community. Production and events programming aims to develop an understanding and critical appreciation of the creative process by engaging in the conceptual and practical process skills of public presentation.
