Enhance your degree . . . and your life

Ever taken a course where you study — and play — video games? What about the acting experience, public speaking, horror film writing, contemporary art of the Middle East, or the cultural impact of film music or writing Harry Potter?

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, a playwriting workshop, where you learn how to take characters off the page and onto the stage, or photography & video art, where you put your skills to use behind the camera.

Other courses take a broad approach to cultural studies — like the Asian identity in popular culture or Indigenous Peoples and Music — and look 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.
