The Right Combination
Many Art majors take advantage of elective courses to gain the widest possible exposure to the liberal arts. Others choose to direct these electives towards an area of specialization within the Arts, often graduating with a minor or double major. The following are among the ways students geared their education toward particular areas within the arts:
Art Double Major with Design, Arts, Technology (DAT)
This provides students with exposure to Art, Communication, Music Technology and Applied Information Technology courses to prepare them for a professional career in arts technology. Learn more about DAT.
Art Double Major with Psychology
