Exploring Architecture, Arts, and Design (undecided)
Exploring Architecture, Arts, and Design
Exploring Architecture, Arts, and Design is an undecided major in the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design (AAD) that serves as a portal to the college's four and five year degree programs.
Choosing a degree program can be tough. The Exploring AAD major was created to help students who know they are interested in Architecture, Arts, and Design disciplines, but not sure exactly which major they want to pursue. Students considering the highly competitive Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, and Industrial Design programs but aren’t sure which one of those majors they want to apply to may find the Exploring AAD major a better start.
How Does it Work?
Once accepted to the Exploring AAD major, students will pursue coursework across the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design while also taking classes that meet some of their general education curriculum course requirements. We’ve secured permission for our Exploring AAD majors to take certain classes typically limited to Architecture, Interior Design, Industrial Design, Landscape Architecture, Studio Art, Art History, Theatre Arts, and Cinema students. Exploring AAD majors are advised about these courses during new student orientation.
You’ll be advised by Rob Jacks, Director of Academic Advising in the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design, and receive advice on taking classes relevant to a AAD major or majors you’re interested in and assistance with how to transition to another AAD major.
