INTERDISCIPLINARY EXPRESSIVE ARTS (IDEA)
The Interdisciplinary Program in Expressive Arts will prepare the student for a variety of careers and future educational options in the arts and related fields. The program encompasses digital media, audio production, performing arts, and visual arts. Coursework in these disciplines is designed so that students receive a broad and comprehensive education in all four areas with an emphasis on interfacing various media which students can then apply to various audio/visual (real world) contexts. At the same time, the program is intentionally crafted in a flexible manner that permits students to tailor their actual degree plan to suit their individual interests and goals.
The program culminates in a senior project that the student chooses (in consultation with a chosen advisor). This project will demonstrate both an academic grasp of the subjects that make up the project but will, more importantly, express the student's individual and creative approach to artistic communication. Degree options include: B.A./B.S., B.F.A. and minor.
