  • About the School:
  • Founded on the principle that artists and scholars are indispensable to each other and to an enlightened society, Purchase College combines professional conservatory programs in the visual and performing arts and distinguished programs in the liberal arts. Purchase celebrates creativity and diversity in a climate of intellectual and artistic freedom. The College seeks and supports students of exceptional talent and aptitude for apprentice relationships with artists, performers, scientists, and scholars making significant contributions in their fields. Purchase students acquire the intellectual skills, general knowledge and cultural appreciation that build the foundation for a productive career and meaningful life. Personal and intellectual confidence is developed through a substantive creative endeavor, performance, or independent scholarly research that culminates the Purchase academic experience. The College's programs and environment promote responsible engagement in a complex and dynamic society. As a public institution, Purchase College promotes lifelong learning for students of all ages, backgrounds, and incomes, and extends the arts to the larger community through exhibitions and performances at our Neuberger Museum of Art and Performing Arts Center. As an educational institution, cultural and artistic center, community resource, and gateway to opportunity, Purchase is committed to enriching the lives of the public it serves.
