    Create a major as unique as you! Students majoring or minoring in INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTS (IDA) take core interdisciplinary arts courses and electives spanning the visual and performing arts. In this electives section, students customize their degree to their specific interests, such as ART, DANCE, FILM, GAME DESIGN, MEDIA, MUSIC, and THEATRE.





    Today’s artists do not have to be bound by a single label. Our comprehensive B.A. in INTERDISCIPLINARY (IDA) program blurs conventional boundaries by challenging students to explore intersecting interests while crafting well-rounded artistic identities. 

    In our IDA program you’ll: 

    Develop creative and technical skills by tailoring your degree to your personal interests. Learn crucial values necessary in contemporary society. IDA students navigate the essences of humanity and cultures from ancient history to the present day by examining the ongoing evolution of artistic expression and creative storytelling. Go beyond the classroom and into the vibrant creative community at the soul of a metropolitan city with the state’s top artistic institutions. Additionally, we regularly offer national and international arts-related trips.
