The second majors in studio art and design each consist of 36 units. The structure of the second major is flexible but sequential. You will have plenty of course options, but second-year and junior-level studios require prerequisites.
You will work closely with faculty in your art and design classes. Whatever your particular skills and talents, the faculty will support you in developing a strong visual practice to build your broader education.
Your journey through a second major in design or studio art begins with learning basic vocabulary and principles. In courses like Drawing, 2D, 3D, and Design Methods, you will learn visual principles and how to compose visual elements. These courses are open to all students and address fundamental concepts, so there’s no need to worry about your level of proficiency, as you begin.
You are also required to take Digital Studio; taking it early on will give you a valuable introduction to producing visual work digitally across a variety of programs and software, including the Adobe Suite.
