Performing Arts

The performing arts minor explores and examines the origins, techniques, and interrelationships of performing arts activities in both specific artistic and broad societal contexts. The ritual of performance will be observed, experienced, and analyzed as regards entertainment, communication, social, historical, and spiritual/personal values. The minor also provides opportunities for students to structure and formalize activities in the performing arts areas. Individual talents and visions find expression in this program, consisting of an introductory course, a senior seminar and related performance project, appropriate applied, ensemble, or practice courses, and three additional units.
