  • Plan I - Visual Studies is an interdisciplinary plan with an emphasis on exploring intersections between art and the public, historically and in the present.
  • Plan II - Studio Art offers a broad array of classes categorized under 2D Pictorial and Photographic Arts, 3D Spatial Arts, and Digital Arts so that students may work in an interdisciplinary mode or choose an emphasis.

  • Plan IV - Graphic Design students are prepared to participate in the ever-changing design field, both in print and on the web.
