    Are you passionate about art, music, theater, and writing?  If so, our Interdisciplinary Arts major is for you!

    You'll draw, paint, sculpt, and manipulate digital images.  You'll perform, study an instrument, and compose.  You'll act, create sets, and design theatrical productions. You'll write poetry or creative nonfiction, edit literary productions, and produce a newspaper.  Best of all, you'll investigate the fascinating ways that these disciplines interact. 

    When you graduate, you'll be prepared for several exciting careers in the arts.  You might become an arts journalist, a gallery or museum curator, or a talent manager.  You could direct a performing arts organization, or continue your studies in graduate school.
