The Fine & Performing Arts Honors Studies minor is only offered for students admitted to the Fine & Performing Arts Scholars program in the Honors College. The purpose of the minor is to equip students with the mindset, knowledge, and skills to develop their relationship to the arts in an interdisciplinary context, with a focus on increasing confidence in artistic productivity and professional practices and an appreciation of the impact that the arts have on their communities in a regional, national and international manner in both an historical and contemporary context. Grounded in theories and methodologies of different forms of artistic practice that include a critical engagement with the arts, a familiarity of the history of the arts in interdisciplinary relations, arts as social innovation and social entrepreneurship, the minor affords students opportunities to study, develop, and implement who they want to be as artists and what kind of careers in the arts they wish to pursue.
