Electives

Enhance your degree . . . and your life

Ever taken a course where you study — and play — video games? What about the history of rock & roll, public speaking, writing for young adults, art forgery, the apocalypse in film, photography & video art, or the cultural impact of Beyoncé and the Beatles?

Each of our five departments offers an exciting range of electives designed to broaden your creative experience. From Music and Writing to Theatre, Visual Arts and Art History & Visual Studies, most of our courses are designed as hands-on experiential learning opportunities — like Vikes Band, where you play live game-day music, or Magazine Production, where you conceive of and create your own magazine.

Other courses take a broad approach to cultural studies, looking at shifts in society and artistic practice and production over hundreds of years.

Whatever your interest or program, Fine Arts has an elective that will enhance your degree and your life.
