USDAN'S MAJOR and MINOR INTEREST ACTIVITIES:
After choosing the 3-week, 4-week or 7-week session, you select a Major Interest Activity. Your Major subject is the one in which you have the greatest interest and desire to participate. Two periods daily are devoted to it. Examples: a violinist would choose Orchestra; a dancer, ballet; an art student, painting, etc.
After making this choice, you then choose a Minor Interest Activity. This Minor consists of one instructional period daily, and is provided to give you an opportunity to enjoy an experience in another art form or in recreation. We ask for three choices, but reserve the right, when necessary, to assign this activity. Please choose carefully for we may have to use your third choice.
Choose your Major and Minor activities with care, because it will be difficult to make changes in the assigned programs. Schedule changes, when possible, will be made upon the recommendation of the faculty within the first 2 weeks of the season.
There are seven Departments at Usdan: Art; Music; Dance; Theater Arts; Nature; Writing; Chess. Applicants choose a major and minor class from one of the choices listed under the Department headings on the application. All students attend a daily Assembly, and all have one 50-minute period of swimming daily.
