Our strength is our interdisciplinary power. At CHASS, students are seen, supported, and challenged as individuals. They study in interdisciplinary programs as multifaceted as they are. We are home to UCR ARTS (a museum and art center in downtown Riverside), several innovative research centers, dynamic performance spaces, and a low-residency M.F.A. program at our Palm Desert campus. CHASS inspires all students to feel at home in the world.
