Which high school courses considered as visual/performing arts

Hi,

For Princeton admission requirements, it says 1 high school credit for visual/performing arts is recommended. Do you know which high school courses are considered as visual arts? e.g. is Web Design 1 considered as a visual arts course?

Thank you.

    Also, will AP Art History or AP Music Theory meets visual/performing arts credit requirement?

    I think you're overtinking this. The website says "most candidates have had some study in the visual or performing arts", which seems to me more an observation than a requirement. If you're a visual or performing artist, great. If you're not, I don't see that as a problem.

    AP Art History and AP Music Theory are both great courses and would enhance anyone's transcript. Take them if they interest you and fit in to your schedule.

    Good luck.
