WHAT: Explore the impact of art on your academic career and create a project that unites your specific discipline and educational experience.
WHY: Performance Scholars demonstrate a deep understanding of their specific discipline through artistic expression and learn a deeper appreciation for how the arts can communicate value and meaning.
HOW: The Undergraduate Performance Scholar Capstone is a two-semester experience that requires students to translate an important concept from their discipline into a publicly accessible work of art or performance. Students should identify the concept and then develop or deepen their artistic ability, and then plan and present their work. Registration in UGST 497 - Performance is required in both semesters of the capstone.
This capstone can be run Fall/Spring or Spring/Fall. Students interested in the Undergraduate Performance Scholars capstone should apply to the program before the end of add/drop in the semester they start the program.
