There is an essential need for students in a research and technically based university to engage in coursework that fosters creative thinking and a hands-on approach to problem solving. The Art and Design Program offers an undergraduate minor in Art and Design disciplines in which the design methodology is experienced in this empirical manner.
Academic Majors who will benefit from this minor:
Any curious undergraduate student in the university who is not majoring in design and who seeks alternative methods of experiencing the environment in which we live.
Minor in Art and Design consists of 15 credit hours of study and has the following requirements:
ADN 111 - Two Dimensional Design and ADN 112- Three Dimensional Design
(These two courses provide an essential foundation in design)
The course selection will be determined with the guidance of the student's Minor advisor and tailored to the needs, interests and goals of the student.
