The Design program offers preparatory studies in the fields of applied design: interior design, fashion design, fashion merchandising, architecture and industrial design. Students obtain a solid foundation in the visual arts and intermediate studies that focus on developing an understanding of design principles through the study of history, design theory and hands-on studio courses. Project work explores various media applicable to a wide range of design professions. The program awards an Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree and is designed to transfer to four-year colleges as the first two years of a liberal arts baccalaureate. Design graduates major in industrial design, interior design, architecture, fashion design, fashion merchandising, design education (teaching design) or other design disciplines.
