The Honors in the Arts program allows students from any major to combine their critical and creative interests by completing an interdisciplinary capstone program in the arts during their senior year. The program consists of the following components:
What you will do
Workshop classes (ARTSINST 201A, 201B, and 201C) in all three quarters of senior year.
Capstone projects: Typically creative projects that combine art practice with knowledge from another field or discipline.
Mentorship: Each student or group will work closely with a faculty advisor and a grad student mentor to develop and complete their capstone.
Symposium: Students will present their work at a public symposium in Spring quarter.
Field research: Students are encouraged to see exhibitions, shows, and lectures on campus and in the Bay Area.
Eligibility and Requirements:
Stanford senior during the 2024-2025 academic year
A minimum overall GPA of 3.4 (or a petition)
Completion of at least three courses that prepare the student to successfully execute an interdisciplinary arts capstone project (at least two of which should be completed prior to autumn of senior year)
Admission to the program is competitive.
We realize that many students have taken Leave at some point during the recent academic years and therefore occupy an ambiguous status between junior and senior. If you plan to graduate after spring 2025, but prior to spring 2026, you are still eligible to apply for the 2024-2025 HIA cohort.
Please note: In order to be eligible for the Honors in the Arts program, students may not have their undergraduate degree conferred before spring quarter 2025. This also applies to students in coterminal masters programs. All requirements for an IHN must be completed as part of your undergraduate career.
