The faculty in the concentration believe that becoming a designer is not only a matter of mastering technology, but also requires the kind of personal artistry and intellectual development that a liberal arts education provides.

The goal of the program is to educate students in three areas of design: theoretical, technical, and creative. Students will receive instruction via demonstrations, lectures, one-on one consultations with professors, and presentations by leading professionals in New York.

Majors take courses in Graphic Design and Illustration. Digital and traditional approaches address design principles and techniques. Elective courses are offered in 3-D Animation, Motion Graphics, Web Design, Video, and Multimedia.

On completion of the program, students graduate with a professional portfolio as part of their capstone requirement.
