Starting this spring, undergraduates from any school can add a major in design or art to their existing degree path. Consider how making visual work and learning the creative process might enhance your primary area of study. Do you want to visualize biology data or draw your scientific ideas? Do you want to explore growing fabric from bacteria? Are you interested in designing a website for a new entrepreneurial effort? What about working on a creative partnership with Barnes-Jewish Hospital to solve patient challenges? Are new technologies inspiring you with ideas for clothing and accessories that you want to realize in real life? And if you're taking courses in creative writing, imagine learning to design and bind the books in our letterpress book studio. Or how to throw a pot on one of our kilns. To learn more about how a major in Art or Design might grow your creativity, expand the horizons of your education, and give you new professional opportunities after college, sign up to learn more here.
