Core curriculum courses

Many courses offered by the DFPA count towards core curriculum credit in Artistic Knowledge and Experience as well as the area of Engaged Learning. 

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.
