UWM Peck School of the Arts Tour Video

A campus visit is the best way to experience any school. As a vibrant arts school, we take that one step further by offering walking information sessions designed for creative minds like yours. Join us to explore our award-winning programs in art and design, dance, film and animation, music and theatre.

Our team of faculty-recommended arts ambassadors are trained to give you a comprehensive tour tailored specifically to your academic and creative interests. If you’d like to see all of UWM, you can also add a campus tour to our on-the-go info sessions. We’re excited to meet you!
