Visual, Media, and Performing Arts includes major programs in the visual arts, art history, music, and theater. The art program offers areas of concentration in animation, arts education, art therapy, graphic design, intermedia and electronic arts, painting and drawing, photography, and sculpture. The art history program offers courses in museum studies in addition to an inclusive curriculum that covers Western and non-Western art. Music students can concentrate in the areas of composition and music technology, theories and histories, performance, and music education. The theater program offers concentrations in acting, design and technology, musical theater, and filmmaking. A combined five-year art/music/or theater education program--bachelor of arts (B.A.) and master of arts in teaching (M.A.T.)--is designed for students interested in active careers as practitioners and educators. Minor programs are available in each area. Major requirements for each of the programs can be completed only through daytime attendance. Additional information about the programs can be obtained from the department office on the second floor, Fine Arts Building. All students at Rutgers University-Camden are encouraged to take arts courses to enhance programs of study in other areas. Prospective majors and minors in some of the areas in art, music, or theater may be required to take placement exams, audition, or submit a portfolio, as appropriate to the area of study, at the discretion of the faculty. For more information, contact the department's office, 856-225-6176.
