The College of Visual and Performing Arts and its Department of Drama were ranked No. 5 on College Magazine’s list of the “Top 10 Colleges for Musical Theater Majors.”

The article notes that the department's musical theater program is “selective and rigorous, yes, but an emphasis on real world training and experience sets it apart from competitors.” The department’s partnership with Syracuse Stage is also noted.
