When the 2012-2013 course catalog is released in March, students will see several new classes added to it. They will also see two new concentrations being offered to students: Film Studies and Arts Administration.
For a concentration to be approved, a proposal must first be presented to all participating departments. The Arts Administration concentration, for example, is the product of the Music and Business departments.
From there, the proposal is sent to the Academic Policies Committee, a group comprised of professors in several different departments and two students, which either approves or disapproves it.
