Core curriculum courses
Many courses offered by the DFPA count towards core curriculum credit in the knowledge
areas of Artistic Knowledge and Experience and Historical Knowledge, as well as areas
of Promoting Civic Engagement or Leadership. Click here for a complete list of
core curriculum courses.

Course rotations
It’s important to note that while many courses are offered every semester, more
advanced classes are offered less frequently- often once a year, or even every

two years. Rotations are subject to change. See your advisor or the director for
more information.

Enrollment problems
If you are a major or minor and are trying to register in a class that is full, contact the
director as soon as possible to be put on a waiting list. Keep checking LOCUS to watch
for drops. Entry to closed classes cannot be guaranteed.

Prerequisites
Make sure to check for prerequisites while enrolling. If you have not taken appropriate
prerequisites, then do not enroll in the course. The department will remove you from
it later, but meanwhile you’ll prevent others from enrolling. See your advisor if your
schedule makes it necessary to take courses out of sequence.
