The undergraduate Design program challenges students to communicate solutions and ideas in a clear and visually striking manner, while mastering contemporary methods of graphic and interactive design.
The bachelor's degree program in Design provides visual,
conceptual, and technical skills required to be a successful designer in a
constantly evolving job market. Exploration of both traditional and
modern technologies will be at each student’s disposal to produce a
wide-range of print, web, motion, environmental, and interactive design
Undergraduate Design students will be immediately considered members of the Design department’s community, where connecting directly to faculty whom bring decades of high-caliber experience and are themselves active design practitioners.
Double majors in Design and Illustration, Design and Fine Art, and Design and Photography are also available, enhancing marketability in a professional field where new hires are required to wear multiple hats.
This course familiarizes students with the complex language of color, enhancing their sensitivity to its physical characteristics, and increasing their ability to manipulate those characteristics to achieve expressive and symbolic aims. Projects emphasize and explore the terms that describe color and color relationships, such as hue, value, intensity, temperature, interaction, and edge strength.
This process-based course explores shorthand methods to both stimulate the imagination and capture fleeting ideas. Emphasis is put on the sketching process as a means of exploration and visual communication. Students learn by doing through a series of short, simple projects plus several more complex, problem-solving exercises.
