Applied Arts - Studio Arts
An Applied Arts concentration is a combination of the theoretical and technical mastery
of a subject with an emphasis on application. Requirements for some specific concentrations
in Applied Arts are detailed below. Other areas such as dance, cinema, interior design,
and architectural design may also be proposed. A concentration in applied arts entails
more than performance ability and experience. It also attests to a student's understanding
of the art performed, both technically and contextually; the ability to engage in
informed discourse about content, style, and meaning; and the insight necessary to
devise independent and effective interpretations of the art through applied activities.
This concentration requires a minimum of 36 credits.

||21 credits, including 9 upper level
