The School of the Arts has emerged as a vital and comprehensive center for arts in the Birmingham area. The Homewood campus hosts local, regional and national artists as it prepares today’s young artists to shape tomorrow’s world.

All of the school’s performances and exhibitions are open to the public and many are presented free-of-charge in the spirit of the school’s educational mission. Individual and season tickets are available for special events and series.
Most importantly, Samford’s School of the Arts offers undergraduate majors in aspects of art, graphic design, theatre, church music, music education, music theatre, instrumental music, theory, music history, vocal/choral music, piano, pedagogy, organ and composition. Minors include art, theatre, music, dance, film and the arts. Graduate degrees are available in church music, music education and piano performance and pedagogy. The academic program also serves the broader community, with music lessons for all ages and music and theatre summer camps for children.
