College of Fine Arts word markEffective June 1, 2019, two departments in the College of Fine Arts will be renamed.

The Department of Design will include graphic design, interior design and design studies.

The Department of Fashion Merchandising will house the fashion merchandising program.

In addition, a new minor, Design of the Built Environment, will be available through the Department of Design and open to all undergraduate students. The Design of the Built Environment minor will provide opportunities for students to explore aspects of interior design as non-majors.

These changes will not affect students currently enrolled.

Both departments will have classrooms and facilities in the new Fine Arts Building, opening this fall. This new space will allow students unprecedented opportunities for creative collaboration in a unique learning environment that enhances cutting-edge, career-ready results.
