Design Studies Track

Increase your appreciation of design, and prepare to apply your knowledge to a variety of professions.

This track is targeted to students who want to become engaged in design but do not intend to become designers. Those seeking specialization and professional preparation for a career as a designer should consider the graphic design or digital art + design concentrations in the B.F.A. degree programs.

In this track, you gain a cross-disciplinary perspective, excellent research experience, a high level of visual literacy, and the creative thinking and problem solving skills. This track is well suited for combining the study of design with a major in mass communication, computer science, English or business. Students in this track receive the B.S./B.A. degree.
