Anchored by our exciting new general education core that is uniquely integrated with life skills, each of our thoughtfully crafted majors will stimulate and challenge you.

Students who major in the arts and design reap the benefits of a process that is steeped in experimentation, and defined by a constant loop of reflection, action, and assessment making our graduates nimble and adaptable. They can see conceptual connections in multi-faceted complex problems that can yield creative solutions. They are adept at receiving feedback, discerning its value, and applying as appropriate. It is no surprise that an arts degree naturally develops graduates that are highly sought after. All these traits have served our students well as they garnered internships and professional careers at companies like Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Cirque du Soleil, Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,LaForce + Stevens, Zimmerman Advertising, Anthropologie, Marriott International, Lillian August, Bluman Group, Gensler, IA, Stroh Creative, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.
