You can earn a degree with a deep studio focus or one with a broader liberal arts orientation. Whether you want to publish illustrated books, create sculptural installations, design for public health initiatives, launch your own fashion line, produce aerial drone videos, or make interactive websites, you can forge an educational path to get there.

Studio is a place for collaboration and creative development. Our students are bright and driven, but also supportive of one another and engaged with social issues and the community. You will learn to make original visual work with technical and conceptual depth, working with faculty who are recognized in their fields, nationally and internationally.
