Main Page Content

The Arts for Children Interdisciplinary Program functions in consortium with Brockport's Departments of Art, Dance, English and Theatre and Music Studies. Twenty-one (21) credits of the 48-credit major coursework are taken within one arts discipline - art, dance, literary arts, music or theatre. This is referred to as the major's specialty area.
