Get to know us
The College of Arts and Letters (CAL) houses eight academic departments centered on the humanities. Our students arrive with a passion and leave with a profession. Learn more about what we have to offer.
Performance and event venues
As a cultural hub of Flagstaff, we love showcasing top talent. Whether you’re on stage or in the audience, a student or someone from outside NAU, our venues provide the experience of a lifetime.
Study abroad opportunities
We encourage our students to learn as much about the human experience as they can. We offer global experiences through our partnership with the Center for International Education (CIE). Students can take part in these faculty-led programs during both the academic year and in the summer.
The NAU community brings people together. We want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy the rich cultural experiences we offer, and many of our events are open to the public and NAU staff and students alike. Find a program that excites you and get involved today!
We showcase local, national, and international talent of all kinds. Check out our event calendar and support the arts.
