In the School of Art+Design, students learn the meaning of a life informed by aesthetic experience, where experimentation, collaboration, and a commitment to making help to forge rewarding career paths in the visual arts and design.
Our curriculum centers on historical and theoretical study, through which students build critical thinking skills, alongside studio-based practice that embraces new concepts, materials, and technologies. Our faculty of working artists is dedicated to creating a supportive climate in which students have the inspiration, resources, and freedom to see, think, make, and grow.
