Why study the Arts at Ohio State?

Visit the Department

Prospective students are encouraged to visit campus. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions provides campus tours.

In addition to these campus tours, we invite you to visit the department before or after your campus tour. Depending on your availability and interests, this could include meeting with a staff member to answer your questions, meeting with a current student to learn what it's like to be a student at Ohio State, touring theatre facilities, and/or sitting in on a class. NOTE: Once we move into our new building, we will also be able to offer tours of filmmaking facilities.

Please note that if you are under the age of 18, the university's Activities and Programs with Minor Participants policy requires that you be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
