The University enrolls more than 4,000 full- and part-time students in 85 undergraduate programs and 11 graduate programs offered through its School of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, School of Communication and the Conservatory of Performing Arts. Its students represent 44 states and 34 countries.
Point Park University’s dance and theatre programs were established in 1968. Point Park University attracts students from around the country to its Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA). Only 7 percent of those who audition for the program are accepted. The University's dance program recently moved into a new, LEED Gold certified Dance Complex, reflecting ongoing efforts to provide the best performance and training environments for students, while remaining environmentally sensitive.
Point Park’s vision is to be one of the most dynamic private, urban universities in America. The vision begins with facilities that give students, faculty and staff the environment they need to excel. Increasing enrollment, now and in the future, will not only create the expansion needed to fulfill this vision, but also animate the new campus with diversity, creativity and vibrancy.
The Academic Village at Point Park University is a multi-block living and learning hub that is transforming the University campus and the Downtown neighborhood it inhabits. It is redefining the student experience, campus life and Point Park’s connection to the community.
As part of the Academic Village, expect to see:
Students, city residents and businesspeople interact in a new green, urban park
World-class speakers, spirited performances and athletic activities inform and delight students in a new Student and Convocation Center
40,000 theatergoers attend performances at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, soon-to-be located in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh
A green roof and other environmentally friendly building techniques create sustainable additions to a revitalized Downtown district and campus
The energy and vitality of the 24/7 Academic Village pulse across Downtown and unite the Market Square and Cultural Districts
