About

  • UWM Dual Discipline Music/Dance

Versatile

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.
