The Arts major offers concentrations in Arts in Context, Dance, Visual Arts, Music, and Theater. Students are encouraged to download the Program Requirement Worksheet (PDF) for The Arts to track their progress.
In all concentrations, students must receive grades of C or higher in all courses taken to meet the requirements for The Arts major or minor.
An Arts major requires 12 courses plus a Senior Capstone, including an Aesthetics course, Integrative Arts courses, and additional courses in one of the five concentrations:
Senior Capstone: Either a senior seminar in the student's concentration (or in Integrated Arts-LINA) or an individual or collaborative independent project. Learn more about the Senior Capstone in The Arts and declare.
Minoring in the Arts
Students majoring in another program may take a minor in one of The Arts concentrations. See the individual concentration requirements for details:
Lang Interarts Curriculum
Lang InterArts (LINA) is a distinctive core curriculum shared among the dance, music, theater, and visual arts concentrations of the arts program at Eugene Lang College. The LINA curriculum, embedded in the liberal arts tradition of Lang, features discussion-based seminars and experiential courses that cross disciplinary boundaries to explore artistic traditions and creative practices in broader historical and cultural contexts, providing foundational tools for critical thinking across the arts. Some courses have a thematic focus (such as representations of identity, debates in performance studies, shock of the new, and femme fatale) while others have an interdisciplinary focus (such as romanticism in music and literature, intermedia, visual music, and ephemeral art). A specific number of LINA courses are required for students in each of the arts concentrations. These classes also attract many students from other programs and majors who want to be at the forefront of the current move toward interdisciplinary scholarship, pedagogy, and practice in the arts.
