The Stanford Arts Institute offers an interdisciplinary Honors in the Arts Program, for interested undergraduates in any major. The program supports collaborative or individual projects that combine the critical and creative imaginations. Projects must be completed in one year. All students will work with mentors and also participate in a weekly workshop. Honors in the Arts can be completed in addition to honors work in a student's home department or alongside another capstone program, such as the Senior Reflection in Biology.
Students must have an overall GPA of 3.4 or higher and will complete additional written assignments at the end of each quarter. Strong preference is given to group projects (two or more students), and projects with real world impact are encouraged. Applications for individual project will also be evaluated. All accepted projects are eligible for modest financial support.
To qualify for admission, students must identify three courses, at least two of which must be completed by the end of the third year, that have provided the necessary foundation for the capstone project. The Creativity Course Guide and the Interdisciplinary Course Guide include courses that provide an introduction to the study of the arts disciplines as well as incorporating the arts in an interdisciplinary context.
