Academic and experiential learning advisors from the undergraduate advising and graduate advising provide guidance on academic matters and assist students in their progress from orientation through graduation.
Faculty mentors from a variety of disciplines are available to explore academic choices at the Department of Art + Design. To speak with a Faculty Mentor for our Undergraduate and Graduate Programs, please contact them to set-up an appointment directly. During summer sessions faculty mentors are only available by appointment.
Laptop, Software and Fonts
The Department of Art + Design Student Laptop Requirements enables students to be better prepared and properly equipped for their studies in the department and their co-op experiences.
The Art + Design curriculum integrates computer technology with most courses. A student-owned laptop and Adobe’s Creative Cloud is necessary for all students to complete course assignments and projects. Generally, Apple computers are the industry standard for most majors in Art + Design, however, many Windows computers are also suitable. You may already own a suitable laptop, however, should you need to purchase one, orders can be placed through myNortheastern, where Northeastern has worked with Apple to offer a discount beyond the standard educational discount. Orders should be placed prior to your arrival on campus. Deliveries to residence halls are strongly discouraged.
If you don’t have a laptop and purchasing one now presents a hardship, there are options available to you. Please contact Chris Franson, our Technical Director, with questions at [email protected] or 617-373-7168.
