Welcome to School of The Arts

We are more than just an art school! As one of the pioneers in the art fraternity in Malaysia, School of The Arts is one of the most dynamic school at USM with year-round concerts and performances, art exhibitions and events organised by lecturers and students. As part of the university’s vision, School of The Arts is determined to transform higher education for a sustainable tomorrow through the Arts.

We strive to provide an unparallel arts and academic education for our undergraduate and postgraduate students in a creative, challenging, and nurturing environment, to ensure that our students are passionate about the arts as we prepare them to reach their fullest potential. With a strong backing in both performance and research our faculty members carry with them years of academic experience and industry knowledge that is crucial in advancing the vision of the university. We are dedicated to advancing human creativity in an increasingly complex and technology-driven world.

Having a diverse international student admission makes it possible for students and faculty members to work and collaborate across international and traditional boundaries. We are a supportive community committed to individual and artistic integrity and inclusion.
