Instead of a prescribed concentration, students can elect to put together a series of courses that can span all concentrations. This can create better job skills for the career of the students’ choice and it can give students exactly what they’re needing for the future.

As the current market looks for people that are skilled in various areas of study, this option may be exactly what students are desiring, but can’t find at other universities. The Department of Art and Digital Media meets the needs of students and their future goals, which is why studio art was created.
