Overview

Written exclusively for college-bound students interested in the creative arts, this updated guide addresses the unique concerns of students pursuing an education in acting, art, dance, music, and writing.

More than 200 art, drama, dance, music, and creative writing programs in arts conservatories, liberal arts colleges, and universities are profiled with critical information such as degrees and concentrations offered, faculty information, cost of attendance, scholarship availability, and alumni accomplishments. Also included are day-in-the-life snapshots of students, frequently asked questions, sample admission essays, and tips from faculty.
