The interdisciplinary arts major builds on the cross-disciplinary nature of the Seattle University Fine Arts Department by allowing students to choose an area of emphasis within the arts while they also integrate courses from other art forms. One student interested in musical performance might choose to bridge theatre and music, while another student might combine music and visual art courses to round out an emphasis in production theatre. Individual programs are designed in consultation with a fine arts faculty advisor.

Requirements


In order to earn the bachelor of arts with a major in interdisciplinary arts, students must complete a minimum of 180 quarter credits, with a cumulative and a major/program grade point average of 2.00, including the following:

II. College of Arts and Sciences Requirements


  • Modern Languages 1150, 1250, 1350, or equivalent (15)

NOTE:


All students with a major in the College of Arts and Sciences must demonstrate competency through the level of 1350 in a language other than English. This competency is ordinarily achieved by successful completion of the three-course sequence: 1150, 1250, and 1350. Because these courses are a college requirement, no course in the sequence may be taken on a pass/fail, correspondence, or audit basis. Placement into other than the beginning course of the sequence is achieved by acceptable performance on the Modern Language Competency Examination. See the Modern Languages Department for details on the examinations. Courses used to satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences modern language requirement may not be used to fulfill major requirements.

III. Major Requirements


65 credits in interdisciplinary arts, including 30-35 credits in an area of emphasis:

Choose one of the following two courses:


NOTE:


In addition to the emphasis courses selected, choose the remaining credits, for a total of 65, in any combination. In consultation with the student’s advisor, 10 of these credits must be from a discipline other than the area of emphasis and 10 must be taken at the 3000-4000 level. (see course descriptions) Total 25 to 30.

Interdisciplinary arts majors must also choose the required senior synthesis course (ART 4900 , MUSC 4900 , THTR 4900 ) in consultation with their faculty advisor.

Students majoring in interdisciplinary arts may not earn a second degree or major within their discipline of emphasis.
