The BA in Performing Arts is an individualized, interdisciplinary major across three departments: dance, music, and theatre. It is also a collaborative venture between two institutions; Marygrove College and the University of Detroit Mercy.
The performing arts major is a 60 credit individualized major combining coursework in dance, music and theatre. Because this is an interdisciplinary major, a minor is not required. A student selects one primary area of concentration with approximately 40 credits and two secondary areas to comprise an additional 15-20 credits. Auditions are required for each of the arts areas.
An interested student will meet with the co-chair of the Dance Department for an advisor to be assigned in the primary concentration. The advisor will work with the student and faculty from related disciplines to design the individual major. Courses for this interdisciplinary major are listed in the catalog sections of Dance, Music, English and Performing Arts and in the University of Detroit Mercy catalog online at www.udmercy.edu
