The The Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts at Southeast is comprised of the Department of Art, Department of Music and the Department of Theatre & Dance and students in these disciplines receive their training at River Campus. Students may elect programs of study that lead to either a professional degree or a liberal arts degree. And to keep up with growing demand, River Campus has undergone new construction of instructional spaces that include an on-site Residence Hall opening this Fall.
