Elective Field:

Alternative Field

24 hours

 

With the guidance of an academic sponsor, usually the student's advisor, an Alternate Field can be devised to satisfy specific degree objectives. The design of this degree depends on student initiative and thorough consultation with the advisor and faculty representative(s) from the department(s) representing the Alternate Field. The courses selected must be thematically congruous and reflect the ideal of a coherent, integrated whole. Applications for the Alternate Field degree are available in the Conservatory Advising Center, McAlister 135. The student's advisor, the Conservatory Director of Academic Studies, and the Department Chair of the appropriate departments approve each Alternate Field degree application.
