The Art and Design Department offers four-year B.S., B.A. and B.F.A. degrees in Furniture Design, Product Design and Woodworking. Major emphasis allows the student to work toward acquiring control of the physical and visual constructs of a given concept such that the desired content is communicated. Ideations are developed through drawings and/or models, and then progress to full-size working pieces. If one is interested in production work, the necessary jigs, fixtures, etc., are also designed and built. Woodworking and furniture design majors usually concentrate on woodworking process, although students are encouraged to become familiar with the adjacent foundry and smithing facilities. The product design major requires a broad background of classes including Sculpture, Ceramics, Metals, and Woodworking.
