Welcome to the Department of Art + Design

The work of artists and designers informs and forms cultures, benefits society, and empowers the global marketplace of ideas. Drawing from a broad range of disciplines and experiential opportunities across the globe, the Department of Art + Design teaches visual fluency in today’s technology-driven world and transforms talented and dedicated students into multidimensional professionals and artists.

Our students hone their artistic abilities and also learn how to channel them into a professional environment, enabling them to create a life out of their passions. Our curriculum is complemented by immersive opportunities to study abroad and gain professional experience, with global programs from Europe to Cuba and an exceptional range of cooperative education (co-op) partners.
