Performing Arts Department
The Performing Arts provide students with courses leading to aesthetic literacy and an appreciation of the arts. Our many offerings give students an opportunity for intrapersonal exploration to make “art” through music and theater. Emphasis is on understanding aesthetic principles and placing the arts in an historical and cultural context. Performing Arts courses have workload expectations similar to other academic areas. The department schedules a fall and spring “Fine Arts Field Trip Day.” Students fulfill course requirements while visiting instrumental performances, participating in recording sessions, or on-campus workshops. Fees depend upon the destination.
