The School of the Arts (SOTA) at the University of West Georgia promotes dynamic collaborations between its constituent departments and programs in Art, Theatre, Music, Creative Writing, and Film, and between the university and the surrounding communities that support it.


The mission of SOTA is to help build and maintain a unified arts culture both on campus and in the surrounding communities. SOTA is committed to defining the arts in the most expansive and inclusive sense, and to illustrating and exhibiting to faculty, students, and the wider public the power of creativity in all its forms. SOTA is also dedicated to enhancing the resources of our programs through meaningful partnerships with arts-forward patrons and programs in the area, since we believe that a thriving arts culture not only makes for more vibrant and tolerant campuses, but also for more desirable places in which to work and live.
