Core Curriculum

The B.F.A. in Design is a focused, pre-professional degree program encompassing typography, image creation/manipulation, interaction design, and 3D design that is intended to prepare students for employment or graduate study in the field of design.

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Design

The university’s B.A. in Design degree program is intended for students who desire a solid foundation in design techniques, aesthetics, research methods, history, and theory, but who prefer the flexibility and breadth of a liberal arts degree to the more studio-intensive and employment-oriented pre-professional B.F.A. degree.
