Our curriculum prepares students for prestigious careers at graduate school and/or meaningful professional careers. Students learn to synthesize information from different sources and to refine their technical skills and aesthetic perspectives.
Committed, Professionally Active Faculty
Our students work alongside faculty who are committed to their success, so students can depend on faculty support long after graduation. Faculty are professionally active, so students can assist on major works of research, and have exposure to renown artists (Rembrandt, Goya, etc) to inspire their future works. Faculty are also consistently advancing their programs to ensure that students continue to have the best, most comprehensive education possible.
Embodying USD's Changemaker designation, our students understand how art and architecture can affect positive change. They are encouraged to think of art/ architecture as a mirror and shaper of societies.
Students will graduate with an expansive portfolio of work to prove their skill set to employers and graduate schools.
Unlike other technically focused programs, our art and architecture programs encourage awareness (cultural, societal and historical), so that our students are able to bring unique perspectives to projects that are desired by employers.
