Digital and Studio Art Major (BA) - Media Arts Concentration


The Digital + Studio Art major focuses on the development of creative, technical, formal and critical skills in digital, analog, and hybridized art forms. The major offers three concentrations which guide students toward building high level skills in a medium: Graphic + Interactive Design (Graphic Design, Web Design, Creative Coding), Media Arts (Video, Audio, Photography, VR/AR), and Studio Arts (Sculpture, Printmaking, Drawing, Painting, Digital Fabrication). 

Digital + Studio Art Coursework is based on hands-on learning experiences, creative challenges, and abundant peer and faculty feedback. The major builds on the broad critical skills central to the liberal arts. Students will be introduced to a diverse range of artists and designers and develop the ability to frame their work in historical and critical contexts.

Digital + Studio Art curriculum culminates in a Capstone Senior Seminar course in which students apply what they have learned to produce a final project for the Senior Exhibition. To help students achieve their creative and professional goals, special emphasis is placed on developing effective project development skills and a robust portfolio. Students will integrate pre-professional work experiences and refine professional writing skills. Digital + Studio Art students are encouraged to pursue an off campus internship experience to further develop their skills and networks that will prepare them for careers after graduation. Student professional development experiences and off campus travel experiences are supported through generous, competitive departmental grants and scholarships.
