The core components of the MAPP specialization are comprised of the new MAPP courses, as follows:
MAPP 200/3.0: Media and Performance I
This introductory course explores the integration of media and performance across a variety of contexts beyond traditional theatre and film. Students will be introduced to key theoretical concepts through which media and performance intersect, and will mobilize these concepts through their own original intermedial performance projects.
Prerequisite: DRAM 100/6.0 or (MUTH110/3.0; MUTH111/3.0) or (BISC 100/3.0; BISC 101/3.0); FILM 110/6.0 or (FILM 104/3.0 and FILM 106/3.0) or (BISC 100/3.0 and FILM 104/3.0)
MAPP 300/3.0: Media and Performance II

This course will include a focus on of the development of 'social design' as a framework for understanding the evolution of digital interactivity and live performance.

The project is undertaken independently by the student, but will unfold in a critical, mutually supportive environment.
