Courses in Other Departments

Courses in History of Art and Architecture, Theater, Dance and Media, and some courses in the domain of cultural studies may be counted for concentration credit for concentrators, subject to the approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Ordinarily, not more than two courses taken outside Visual and Environmental Studies may be so counted.

Students interested in taking additional courses for concentration credit outside the department should consult the Director of Undergraduate Studies or the Manager of Academic Programs prior to enrolling if the course, if possible.

All concentrators are required to submit a Course Requirement Substitution Form petitioning for credit for a non-departmental course, along with an active link to the syllabus for the course.
