This program is best suited for the self-motivated student who has a very particular, well-defined interest, not currently offered within one of our majors. Curriculum is built upon a series of existing classes from two contrasting areas/departments of study at Peck School of the Arts, and culminates with a thoroughly researched and comprehensive capstone project.
Interested students will need to be proactive with faculty members who will approve and supervise coursework and completion of the capstone project.
Curriculum below is approved for students currently enrolled in the respective program, depending upon original date of declaration. Future adjustments for new/incoming students will be posted by Fall Semester. After reviewing, please connect with our advising office to start planning your degree path today!
Dual Discipline students work closely with advising to identify specific course and degree requirements. Dance and Music each require an entrance audition.
