General Studio

The general studio specialization allows students to explore the different media of art and design and tailor a program to their particular needs: medical illustration, advertising, gallery management, graduate study in art therapy, or other career options that incorporate more than art and design.

This program offers the diversity that many students in art need as they enter today's creative fields.
