Creative Media (BFA) Major

Creative Media

What does it mean to be creatively fearless? How can you push the boundaries of art and communication? How do you learn technique if you are not comfortable playing by the rules or working within constraints? Creative Media majors explore their love for various artistic expressions as they create something new.

In this distinctive program, you will:

  • Explore the iterative nature of creative work by evaluating and deconstructing and revising your work in innovative Studio Workshops and Salon Seminars-course experiences that most students don't have until the MFA (Master of Fine Arts) level.
