This multidisciplinary option is for the student interested in working across media and who is interested in research, cultural studies, and exploratory models of art making. This major involves 18 credits in a core of multidisciplinary classes and 15 credits in a discipline emphasis which supplies depth of studio experience. The discipline emphasis can be chosen from one of the program areas in Fine Arts, Crafts, or Media Arts.

The core multidisciplinary classes will begin in the spring term of the sophomore year and will involve class research and studio. Junior year will consist of a class addressing issues of cultural relevance with lectures by experts in their respective fields combined with studio work that responds to the presentations.
