Contact: Professor Anna Lemnitzer

The interdisciplinary arts major at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford provides learners with a broad-based education in art, music, theater, and writing. The major explores the thematic relationships among the fine and performing arts through a combination of theoretical study and experiential learning. Students take courses within four academic disciplines, selecting two disciplines as major components of study. The interdisciplinary experience culminates with the completion of the Capstone course, in which senior students create projects that encompass multiple arts disciplines. Students majoring in interdisciplinary arts complete a total of 45 credits in the program - 9 general program credits taken by all students, 18 credits in each of two major areas of study.

Please be advised


Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
