Design Studies Minor
Situated within the studio arts program, the interdisciplinary minor in design studies brings together the formal and conceptual principles of design in the visual expressions of the fine arts (painting, sculpture, photography, etc.), the commercial arts (graphic design, illustration, etc.), the industrial arts (engineering), and the performing arts (stage, costume, and lighting design).
Course options in communication, marketing, English, and art history offer the opportunity to contextualize the principles and products of design in a broader historical, sociological, and cultural context.
Course requirements and options within the design studies minor enable students to develop a common skill set of literacy and fluency in a range of design software programs (Photoshop, InDesign, Light Box, Fuse, etc.), the utility of which has become increasingly more essential to a range of fields of study and vocations.
