Theatre and the Interdisciplinary Arts Curriculum: Proceed at Your Own Risk.
Malinauskas, Mark J.
In arguing for an interdisciplinary higher education curriculum in the arts (IDC), this paper points out that such collaborative efforts will help students to understand more thoroughly the interrelationships and underlying unity of the arts, to articulate their training more forcefully to the general public, and to engage more actively in creative expression. The paper addresses three areas relevant to the implementation of such a curriculum: (1) the real or imagined hazards posed by an IDC program, (2) possible approaches to the design of a basic IDC curriculum, and (3) course objectives and methods of achieving those objectives.
