Urban Arts Major

View pages in this section

The Urban Arts major prepares students to contribute to the planning and redevelopment of urban areas by creating and participating in organizations that produce, exhibit, perform, and disseminate programs in the visual and performing arts and in organizations that can employ the arts to enrich the cognitive, affective, and behavioral experiences of those who live and/or work in urban environments.


The interdisciplinary focus of the program includes courses in the visual and performing arts and in the methods of presenting public programs in the arts, as well as courses in communication, economics, and urban sociology.

Graduates of Coppin's Urban Arts major are fully cognizant of the physical, economic, social, and artistic infrastructures that undergird urban cultures.  These graduates are prepared to work with the people who live in urban environments to enrich their lives and the lives of their communities through the arts.

Students interested in majoring in Urban Arts may choose one of three tracks:

 

  1. Arts Administration
  2. Visual Arts Concentration
  3. Theatre
