ART 450, MUS 450, or THEA 450: Arts & Entrepreneurship Intensive

Over the academic year, three to six guest lecturers will be brought to campus to present workshops/master classes on various Arts and Entrepreneurship topics. These master classes/workshops would consist of 15 contact hours, be assigned 1 hour of academic credit, and focus on applied learning. These sessions could be scheduled in a variety of ways, from one weekend to several evenings or over several weeks. Each session could have an online preparation component where students study any relevant materials that the guest lecturer deems important to the experience. Each student participates in the complete master class/workshop. Students would be required to complete a minimum of six of these Arts and Entrepreneurship experiences before graduation to satisfy the course requirements, however students would be allowed to participate in as many of these experiences as they desire provided they register for them. Multiple master classes/workshops would be offered each semester to allow for student conflicts with their unit-based creative work and studies. [Each Intensive is 1 Credit. 6 Credits required]
