Area of Emphasis: Arts
What is the “Area of Emphasis?”
The Area of Emphasis is the portion of the major that focuses your degree on the field of study you want to pursue. The Arts Emphasis is made up of five courses (15 credits) from UW-Green Bay’s Department of Arts and Visual Design, taken after the completion of one prerequisite course from the department, for a total of six courses/18 credits.
