Welcome to the University of Southern Mississippi (Southern Miss) in Hattiesburg.
Increasingly referred to as the “Arts University of Mississippi,” Southern Miss is one of only 24 schools in the country to be accredited in all four major art disciplines: music, theatre, visual arts and dance.
And with an increasing amount of interaction between the community and the university, Hattiesburg – also known as the Hub City – is well on its way to becoming an arts hub for creative talent and creative minds from around the state and beyond.
