The BRAA Difference
The difference between us and many other institutions is that our elective credit pedagogical focus is the ARTS. Rather than offer arts disciplines for 5 months only, at BRAA students can study in their arts ‘major’ all year round. We do this by providing 2 arts classes that are offered in a Day 1/Day 2 Schedule both semesters. Both credits will be obtained simultaneously for a value of 1 credit each acquired in June 2020. Upon completing the registration process, arts students are required to select a major.
Major Credits refer to the students’ focus discipline for artistic training (Visual Arts, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, Dance, Drama). Students then can select a second arts elective course to either support their major arts focus OR expand their artistic abilities in another area.
Minor Credits refer to the students’ selection of a second arts elective course to either support their major arts focus OR expand their artistic abilities in another area.
Some students may wish to pursue only one arts discipline. These students will be required to take an online course in the other block. These courses will be monitored by a staff member as a Supervised Study Period.
