The arts are alive and well at Hancock!

Here at Allan Hancock College we see the Fine Arts department as the epicenter for creative investigation and opportunities from Santa Ynez to Santa Maria. A look at the curriculum reveals that students take a variety of classes to fulfill their General Education requirements, thoroughly preparing you for study in a selected discipline.

It is with great pride that we have a new 88,000 square-foot, two-story fine arts complex. It includes visual and performing arts as well as the Boyd Recital Hall.
