Will students be able to take any classes outside of their specialty?
The courses you are required to take vary from school to school, so you should begin by checking requirements for your chosen major and any core requirements for the college. If you are attending a conservatory or art institute program the courses outside your specialty may be limited because the curriculum is so concentrated. However, if you are majoring in the arts at a college or university, you should expect to take a number of classes outside the arts department. You may even be able to major or minor in an unrelated field. Everything depends on your college’s requirements, so check the course catalog and ask.
