Creative & Performing Arts Proficiency

In Spring 2016 the faculty created a new Creative and Performing Arts proficiency for students entering Fall 2016 and beyond.

The purpose of this proficiency is to understand the artistic process. Accordingly, by actively involving students in exercises that require artistic choices, these courses aim for an experience-based understanding of how the artist communicates. A course that satisfies this proficiency requires a student to begin to understand an art at the foundational level through artistic activities involving each of the following: developing their artistic skills; and applying the principles of the art through projects and/or exercises.

All current GER 6 courses were blanket-approved for this new attribute.

To request that other/new courses be given this attribute, use the Curriculog form for Domain, ACTV, and Arts designations.
