Arts in Context

The Arts in Context concentration is designed for students who wish to study an Arts discipline (Contemporary Music, Dance, Theater, or Visual Studies) together with a liberal arts discipline (such as Literary Studies, Culture and Media, Philosophy, Psychology, or Urban Studies). Think of Arts in Context as a mini-double major in which students explore music and anthropology, dance and psychology, theater and writing, visual studies and science, or any other combination of disciplines that relates to their academic and creative interests.

In addition to taking Lang courses for their electives, Arts in Context students can include courses offered by other schools in the university, such as Parsons The New School for Design or Mannes College The New School for Music. Students are also encouraged to apply for the International Arts: Arts in Context program at the American University of Paris to study abroad for a semester during their junior year.
