Our faculty is comprised of many unique parts. We move seamlessly from the physical to the digital. You will learn to make, to analyze, to express.

A creative life grows out of inquiry, is nurtured through diversity, and strives to engage the world, reinventing and renewing itself over time.

At the Department of Art and Design, we understand the creative life. We aim to stimulate and provoke students as independent thinkers and creators who explore various media and methods, under the mentorship of distinguished faculty who – like a mosaic – become a whole comprised of many distinct, yet connected parts. We can show you how to reinvent and renew yourself over a creative lifetime beginning with coursework that will challenge you and prepare you for careers limited only by your own imagination.
