Arts Division

The arts at Antioch College are experiential and experimental.

Home » Academics » Arts Division


We see the arts as important social practices that challenge  us to think from new perspectives, feel outrage or empathy, and cultivate a kind of civic imagination. Students and faculty study and make documentary and narrative film, radio, 2D and 3D visual art, and experimental theatre and performance art. They make art to express, question, confront, and empower. We encourage and support students to explore new mediums and to find synergies  with other disciplines and to engage with broader political and social ideas.

Students gain valuable real-world work experience through our Cooperative Education program, and document their insights on Antioch Engaged: our journal of social practice & professional engagement
