Applied Art

Minor or LIBS Concentration Only

Among the humanistic disciplines, Applied Art offers great opportunity for interdisciplinary inquiry and teaching. Art is often discussed as a universal form of communication, and the processes of visual interpretation and creation cut across human experience. In an image-centered society such as our own, the objects and critical methods of art creation provide a vital linkage point not only between disciplines, but also between students and the world around them. To provide more specific examples, students majoring in English, Anthropology, Journalism and Screen Studies, Biology, and Computer Engineering would benefit from an Applied Art minor to build both their knowledge of processes of human artistic creation and also the practical skills of digital image creation for different contexts and uses.
