Core Courses
3 courses required

Students should complete the two introductory core courses and studio requirement before enrolling in the capstone. The core introductory courses are offered every fall. The capstone is offered every other spring, in even years.

  • ANTH 3074 Forms of Seeing (3 credits)

  • FAA 1080 Intro to Contemporary Art & Visual Culture (3 credits)

Studio
1 course required, at or above 2000-level

Students will take at least one studio and/or media production course at or above the 200/2000-level from the approved studio list. While enrollment in the certificate program provides special access for non-DAAP students to enroll in Fine Arts studios without completing the Foundations requirement, students will still need to seek instructor approval. Intermediate and advanced courses may still require prerequisites. Students may petition the co-directors of the certificate to substitute alternative studios, pending space and instructor approval. As CCM is not a formal partner in this certificate, access to its studios are subject to space and instructor approval for certificate students.

Historical and Cultural Perspectives
1 course required

Students must choose one course from the approved electives list to satisfy the Historical and Cultural Perspective Elective requirement. Upper-division courses may still require prerequisites. Students may petition the certificate co-directors to substitute other courses.

General Electives
2 courses required

Students must choose two courses from the approved General Electives list to meet this requirement. Only one course below the 2000-level may be applied toward the general electives requirement. Upper-division courses may still require prerequisites. Students may petition the certificate co-directors to substitute other courses.
