About the Major

The Contemporary Arts Major is an interdisciplinary contract major offered through the School of Contemporary Arts. It is designed to enable students with specialized interests in the arts, communication, their practices and industries to work with an advisor and develop a program of study that is tailor-made to the students' interests and career goals.

While each major is individualized, there have been concentrations developed in the following areas:
  • Integrated Arts
  • Cultural Studies
  • Arts in Community
  • Multimedia
  • Arts Management
  • Music Industry
  • Business Communication
  • Advertising and Public Relations
Students in the Contemporary Arts contract major take courses from a wide variety of disciplines and practices across the College. The selection of courses, and disciplines, included in a student's contract depends on the area of concentration. Particularly common is to combine courses in the arts (literature, media arts, music, theatre, visual arts), communication (media studies, writing, audio, radio and television production, speech, advertising, public relations) business, social sciences (cultural studies, psychology, sociology, economics) and technology.

This major leads to a B.A. degree. The major requires a minimum of 33 credits, in addition to the School of Contemporary Arts School Core. At least 12 credits in the major must be upper level (300/400).
