Art and Design Department
The professional world of illustration is competitive and stylistically diverse.
Only illustrators with broad-based knowledge, good business sense, superior research skills, technical facility, and sustained commitment will succeed. The illustration curriculum for this emphasis is designed to help students become adept in these areas and to help them learn to balance historical perspectives of the field with an awareness of contemporary practices. In addition, majors are encouraged to balance aesthetic sensitivity with professional practicality and traditional craft with individual creativity.
After completing the foundations review, students complete a secondary admissions process for the illustration program.
Students may pursue a BFA in Studio Art in this emphasis.
