The Gallatin Interdisciplinary Arts Program distinguishes itself as a hybrid of arts practice and scholarly inquiry. Through a combination of coursework, lectures, exhibitions, and performance opportunities, students are immersed in the liberal arts and in research. Modeled on the artist-scholar philosophy of education, the Program invites students to design concentrations that combine intellectual pursuits and creative work. This a trademark of Gallatin: our students cross borders between different disciplines and learn how to enrich them by bringing them into conversation.
Through tutorials, private lessons, research fellowships, and independent studies, Gallatin students further enhance their academic and creative studies. Students here enjoy the ability to study the arts and to benefit from opportunities for practicing their craft outside the classroom, all within a rigorous liberal arts education that allows various opportunities for collaborative exchange.
