Rice is a leading research university-small, private, and highly selective-distinguished by a collaborative, interdisciplinary culture and global perspective. Only a few miles from downtown Houston, it occupies an architecturally distinctive, 300-acre campus shaded by more than 4,000 trees. State-of-the art facilities and laboratories, internationally renowned centers and institutes, and one of the country's largest endowments support an ideal learning and living environment.

The university attracts a diverse group of highly talented students and faculty with outstanding graduate and professional programs in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, architecture, music, and business. With just 1,700 graduate students and 2,700 undergraduate students, it offers an unusual opportunity to forge close relationships with eminent faculty scholars and researchers and the option to tailor graduate programs to specific interests.

The Visual and Dramatic Arts program at Rice allows emerging artists and scholars to ground their work in informed perspective. We encourage, support, and work hard to bridge energetic and artistic pursuit with scholarly thought and dialog.
