Visual Art & Design Concentration

For students who live to paint, sculpt, take photographs, make prints, or engage in other forms of visual art, this concentration enables a closer connection with their craft. You'll have the time to focus on creating work and the encouragement to explore new directions from faculty members who are artists themselves.

  • Pursue your artistic vision; learn about interdisciplinary intersections with fields as varied as public discourse, politics, and accounting.
  • Develop skills used in digital arts by working with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and related software.
  • Increase your marketability through internships; you can collaborate with artists and learn through exhibiting their art.
  • You'll finish with a well-rounded portfolio that can get you into a fulfilling career or could be a passport to an MFA program.
