Special Study & Internships


Students who are interested in a special topic of study may design a course of study which concentrates on the historical or theoretical aspects of that topic. This individually designed course of study is called a directed inquiry.

For practical application of classroom studies, the department offers a wide array of opportunities in its internship and applied studies. Internships and applied studies within the department may be taken in the areas of arts management, theatre design and performance. The department has strong community ties with television and radio stations, newspapers and advertising companies. This diverse range of internships and applied studies are very important in the goal of providing the most nearly complete education for our majors.
