Visual and Performing Arts is a contemporary academic field that approaches the visual and performing arts as a cohesive body of study. Its purpose is to explore the interconnectedness of art history, music, and theatre arts through a comparative examination of their themes, conventions, and aesthetic developments. This major also promotes understanding of the role of the arts in history and society and appreciation for human artistic expression.

Electives 5 courses (15 credits)

Students concentrate in one of the areas: (i.e., History of Arts and Architecture, Music or Theatre) taking three additional courses in that department and one additional course in each of the remaining two departments.

Additional Requirement 1 course (3 credits)

After earning 90 credits, all Interdisciplinary Arts majors must take HAA 1955 , MUSIC 1955 , or THEA 1955  to fulfill the capstone class requirement.
