Art & Writing major
The art and writing major is an interdisciplinary major combining strengths from the art department and the English department for students interested in both visual and written arts. The two areas of study fit together nicely. A senior-level seminar invites students to consider how visual art and creative writing can together feed artistic creativity.
"I’m going to be doing an independent study, so I’m going to be working on [a fantasy
children's] book while working on a black and white storyboard for the first draft
of an animated movie."
