Interdisciplinarity expands the boundaries of conventional knowledge exponentially, and thus should be considered at the forefront of academic inquiry. — Charles Buchanan, PhD
Undergraduate Interdisciplinary B.F.A. Degree
Interdisciplinary Arts: A Unique Degree Path
A uniquely collaborative, multi-focus degree program, made possible through a joint effort across five schools in the College of Fine Arts.
The Interdisciplinary Arts B.F.A. is distinguished by its collaborative mission and curriculum. Students in the program will work with advisors in 2 or more schools, which will provide not only substantial areas of concentration but, when combined, a unique degree path.
A program advisor within the School of Interdisciplinary Arts will coordinate and approve appropriate curricular plans for each student pursuing the degree.
