This collection contains publications of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine. Included are brochures, course announcements, fliers, invitations, newsletters, press releases, and programs.
The Division of Fine Arts was founded in 1964. It was composed of the Departments of Art, Drama, Music, and Dance, all of which offered majors leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. Additionally, the division offered an interdisciplinary major involving any two of the departments and participation in productions, concerts, or exhibits. A two-year program leading to the Master of Fine Arts degree was later established in 1969. Offerings in all areas of the arts included a comprehensive study of literature, history, theory, and criticism to complement the practical work in studio workshops and performance. From its outset, the Division of Fine Arts was committed to a performance and studio-centered program rather than a theoretically based program of study. In addition to producing student concerts, musicals, and dramatic performances, the Division of Fine Arts collaborated with UCI's Committee for Arts and Lectures to present a variety of cultural events each year. The Division of Fine Arts and the Department of English also offered an interdisciplinary program in playwriting leading to the Master of Fine Arts.
