PVA Majors RAP Seminar 

Read what Clair Cangialosi Fall 2019 instructor said about this one-credit seminar: 

In this seminar, we will discuss the many issues that face the quickly changing environment of the visual and performing arts. As artists, we must collaborate and find creative solutions to the problems encompassing our paths in life. We will cover topics such as:

  • race, gender, sexuality,
  • economics, technology integration,
  • future career paths, attracting audiences, self-marketing, and
  • incorporation of multimedia approaches as they relate to the arts.

In addition to this very crucial step into the world of critical thinking, we will also be talking about how UMass Amherst can and will prepare us for our endeavors through the use of general education and how we can prepare ourselves for a personal and emotional challenge through professionalism as well as preparedness. 

During Summer NSO, academic advisors will work with students to choose all the other courses based on the individual's major.

Location Fall 2019

Students will live together in Van Meter Hall in the Central residential area.
