The Global Arts Studies Program (GASP) at UC Merced provides a holistic and interdisciplinary study of the many arts practices of the world. The program provides opportunities for students to perform, present and analyze artistic practices in multiple media, and to investigate how these practices have been affected by social, political and economic structures. GASP is a unique curriculum in the University of California system because it integrates diverse subjects normally housed in different departments, including art history, musicology, performance studies and media studies.
