If you want to pursue an arts and design degree tailored to YOUR interests, Integrative Arts is for you.
The Integrative Arts program is specifically designed to encourage and to provide students with the broadest opportunities to explore unique and unexpected creative, intellectual, and vocational pathways. The program is dedicated to helping its students acquire the unique intellectual and creative tools they will need to achieve their individual career goals and creative aspirations.
Integrative Arts students identify a specialized course of study for their degree program that may focus on a particular topic, creative path, or career goal in the arts. In consultation with an adviser, students devise an individualized academic plan that will best help them to investigate their chosen theme, usually by combining study in two or more arts areas with explorations in other subject areas such as science, engineering, business, or communications.

Students are encouraged to engage in career-related internships and self-directed research projects, as well as independent study courses.
