Laptop Requirement


The goal of the Peck School of the Arts laptop requirement is to provide the opportunity for students to work extensively and intuitively with the most significant contemporary tool for their work so that they will excel not only in their courses but also in their profession after they graduate.

While laptop computers are strongly recommended for students in all Peck School of the Arts programs, laptops are required for the programs listed below due to current pedagogic needs for the delivery of instruction in each.
