Interdisciplinary Visual Arts

Undergraduates in the BA in Art with an Interdisciplinary Visual Arts (IVA) concentration develop skills and knowledge in the visual arts through completion of selected courses in studio art (ceramics, glass, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation, and photography), art history, and related experiential courses. Students also have the opportunity to choose from various interdisciplinary studio art topics and complete a senior project (ART400).

They may also investigate elective areas to inform their major focus, such as film studies, architecture, business, comparative history of ideas, digital arts and experimental media, and animation.

In addition to academic studies, many Interdisciplinary Visual Arts students participate in internships in preparation for future careers in visual art-related fields such as education, arts administration, museum and gallery work, architecture, art therapy, animation, interior design, fashion design, fine arts, art conservation, film and media, advertising and marketing.
