Butler University’s Jordan College of the Arts (JCA) puts our students and their success at the forefront of everything we do. Our nationally recognized, conservatory-level instruction combined with the flexibility to choose your own path—double major, study abroad, participate in clubs, intern, etc.—provides a liberal arts education that will help you become an artist-citizen who knows how to succeed in an ever-changing arts world.
What’s more, we are situated in the heart of Indianapolis’ thriving arts scene. You’ll be encouraged to connect with the local community and get real-world experience while you develop as an artist.
We offer award-winning faculty, world-class facilities, and internationally recognized programs. In JCA, you’ll find a supportive and nurturing environment where you can imagine, innovate, and inspire your own creative and artistic life.
JCA Land Acknowledgement Statement
We acknowledge that we gather here at Butler University on the traditional land of indigenous peoples
including the Potawatomi, Miami, Delaware, and Shawnee.
We honor with gratitude the land itself and the indigenous peoples past and present who have stewarded it throughout the generations.
This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit,
while also acknowledging that some were brought to this land not by choice.
