About Creative Arts
Welcome to the Department of Creative Arts which is a major art school for studies in the plastic and performative arts in Nigeria. It evolved from the Centre for Cultural Studies founded in 1975 into the Department of Creative Arts in 1997 offering degree programmes in Theatre arts, Music and Visual arts. With its relatively short history, it has grown to become a department to reckon with at the University of Lagos and the Lagos community We pride ourselves as having some of the most talented students of the University. It has since inception, transformed the cultural life of the campus with regular theatrical performances, musical show and general enhancement of the picturesque environment of the campus with sculptures and murals made by its students.
The Department draws from the larger lustrous and vibrant art scene in Lagos which compliments research, productions, and other creative work in the Department. Our Department attracts several distinguished scholars and artists-playing host to several Fulbright scholars. The Department of Creative Arts continues to be the place of choice for visiting scholars and an engaging platform that enhances cross fertilisation of ideas amongst faculty, students and visitors.
We are proud of our prosperous alumni engaged in the Hollywood and music industry much as we can boast of artists that feature in major art exhibitions and biennales around the world. We offer a broad spectrum of courses at both graduate and undergraduate levels and unparralled opportunities for students who come under our tutelage. This is ‘The’ Lagos Art School and one that showcases the best of Nigeria’s culture in an atmosphere of rigorous research, innovation and design.
