Academics: Musical Theatre Program is amazing! Very rigours and challenging! Big workload

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It depends on what class you take. The classes that are required for me are not the most proficient.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The Conservatory of the Performing Arts at Point Park University is very strong. I am a dancer in the conservatory with a concentration in Jazz. The dance program is one of the top programs in the country, and even the world. I am learning and training vigorously each day and becoming stronger as a dancer in order to be a professional performer after graduation. The facilities of the dance studios are unbelievable and offer top notch opportunities for dance students. The studios are huge and immaculate, offering a creative environment for the dancers. I am very pleased with the program here at Point Park University.
