The contributing departments for this program are the Department of Communication, the Studio Art Program of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and the Department of English.
The program is designed so the aesthetic judgment and understanding acquired in the studio art coursework and the technical facility and analytical processes learned in the communication and English coursework can be focused on discovering innovative and aesthetically pleasing solutions to the specific problems inherent in the visual communication process.
This combination of attributes equips students to produce and address visual communication in a variety of media. Students are encouraged to complete an internship as part of the minor.
A minimum of 12 credits must be selected from designated studio art courses.
