School of Interdisciplinary Arts

The School of Interdisciplinary Arts offers opportunities for custom degree programs. Our students can work with advisors in multiple schools within the College of Fine Arts (music, dance, theater, film, art and design) to create a one-of-a-kind experience that crosses traditional disciplines into a supportive community of artist scholars. Students with diverse artistic backgrounds who have the vision to create their own path can do so collaboratively alongside faculty artists and peers.
