Curriculum

  • This page outlines requirements for the degree in The Arts (BA, The Arts). Lang students can also major in Contemporary Music and Theater. In addition to these majors, Lang students can propose a self-designed major (BA or BS, Liberal Arts) including any Arts courses from Contemporary Music, Dance, Theater, or Visual Studies. Students interested in this option should consult their advisor. Undergraduates from any college in the university who are not majoring in Liberal Arts can select a minor from Lang's offerings, including Dance, Contemporary Music, Theater, and Visual Studies. Arts majors can enroll in any minor of their choice, including an Arts minor in a discipline different from the one they are studying as their major.

    Lang Interarts Curriculum

    The interdisciplinary Arts curriculum at Eugene Lang College encourages students to explore the arts within a liberal arts framework, balancing academic study and research with creative experimentation and practice. Students majoring in The Arts (BA, The Arts) choose a concentration from the three listed below. Visit the concentration's webpage for degree requirements.

    Central to the Arts program is the Lang Interarts (LINA) curriculum, a distinctive set of interdisciplinary courses shared by the four areas of study (Contemporary Music, Dance, Theater, and Visual Studies). The LINA curriculum features discussion-based seminars and practice-based courses that bridge disciplinary boundaries in order to explore the arts from broader conceptual and creative perspectives. Lang Arts majors in Contemporary Music, Dance, Theater, or Visual Studies are required to complete three LINA courses, while Arts in Context concentrators complete one LINA course as part of their interdisciplinary plan of study.

    Current and recent Lang Interarts courses include Ideas and Practices Across the Arts, Arts Writing Workshop, Arts Digital Toolkit, Intermedia, Performance Process, Politics of Improvisation, and Creative Algorithms, as well as courses such as Arts in New York City that take students into the city for a variety of exhibits, events, and performances.
