SOCSA Mission Statement
The mission of SOCSA is to provide an in-depth educational opportunity to those students who have chosen fine arts as their first occupation objective. SOCSA will respond to that objective by providing a dynamic and creative environment in which students will be involved in thinking and meaning centered classes with rigorous curricula which integrate academic disciplines and artistic vocational learning. Course sequences with career themes will be created and implemented to afford students the chance to explore and develop their artistic talents, to understand the opportunities available to them, to have mentor and work experience, and to develop employability transcripts that will set them apart from the crowd.
Soka University's beautiful new 1,000-seat Soka Performing Arts Center and Academic Hall add approximately 95,000 square feet to the SUA Campus. Located behind Founders Hall, the Soka Performing Arts Center features world-class acoustics designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, acoustic designer of noted performance venues like the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Suntory Hall in Tokyo. In addition, the adjacent academic building features a new black box theater and dance studio, and adds 11 classrooms and 29 additional offices to support academic programs.
