The Theatre & Dance Department is proud to house CU Boulder’s interdisciplinary certificate in Hip-hop Studies. This consolidated certificate program for matriculated undergraduate and graduate students is designed to expose students to the richness, complexity, and vitality of Hip-hop as theory and practice.
The graduate and undergraduate certificates in Hip-hop Studies are designed to be enriching, interdisciplinary supplements to other areas of study. They provide a broad base, which can serve as an entry point to more focused study and practice. While offering rich and rewarding experiences, these certificates are not a professional endorsement of the student’s skills from Rennie Harris or Larry Southall. Rather, they develop students’ appreciation and respect for one of the most important American cultural forms to have emerged in the last half-century.
The certificate in Hip-hop Studies is is designed to emphasize both the theory and practice of hip-hop. Classes immerse students in the culture of Hip-hop and develop the critical thinking skills and theoretical context required for understanding Hip-hop's socio-historical development and political efficacy.
