About this course

During the program students acquire a fundamental understanding of the most relevant perspectives and methodologies for studying the arts as mediated processes including arts philosophy, arts cognition, media theory, arts aesthetics, and arts sociology. Because the program develops a framework for thinking about the mediation of the arts in international contexts especially in a climate of increased competition and decreased funding, the themes of arts legitimization, globalization, digitalization, and intertexuality remain important issues from which to situate current patterns of evaluation, distribution, organization, and creativity. During the program, students enroll for these two arts disciplines for their major:

  • Film
  • Music
