Art, Media, and Design (BA) is a program of interdisciplinary study with three concentrations: Studio Art, Photography and Media Art,and Graphic Art. Each of the concentrations comprises wide varieties of comparative courses, specifically designed to enhance students’ creativity, productivity, artistic and analytic skills and the grasp of the subject matter on the whole. Students will first complete required core courses and then follow with the requirements of their desired area of concentration.

For visual arts education, please visit the DePaul University Catalog.

Students in the Art, Media, and Design program can choose from the following concentrations:

  • Photography and Media Art
  • Studio Art
  • Graphic Art
  • Pre-Professional Study: Students combine their art major with other disciplines to prepare for graduate study in animation, business, communications, graphic design, and in the history of art and architecture.
