Take Your Place

Seton Hill's tradition of excellence in performing arts education dates back to the first two students - both bachelors of music - to graduate from the university in 1919. As a performing arts student at Seton Hill today, you will benefit from our world-class Performing Arts Center, brand new award-winning Arts Center, and dedicated professors.

“Professors were not only educators, but also working professionals in the business. Knowing they were teaching by day and directing/writing/acting or designing professionally by night was something I very much respected and drew inspiration from on a daily basis.”

- Darcy Wood, actress and Seton Hill performing arts alumna. Read more about Darcy here.
