Online BIS in Art and Society

Blue Background

The Art and Society concentration is designed for students interested in visual and performing arts and the role of cultural production in society. The concentration will prepare students for work in a variety of fields, such as museum or gallery work, design, media, education, or cultural production. It is also appealing to students who plan to pursue graduate study in the arts or humanities.

Those focusing in the concentration complete 18 credits of concentration courses from an approved list. Students are also required to take two ISLS courses and ISIN 4510 Special Topics in Conduct of Inquiry: Social Sciences and ISIN 4520 Special Topics in the Conduct of Inquiry: Humanities, 24 credits of degree electives, Capstone I and Capstone II.

Degree elective courses must be outside of the Art and Society Concentration. These vary by semester and may include courses in disciplines such as anthropology, business, classics, drama, economics, history, information technology, music, philosophy, politics, religion, and sociology.
