History + Theory Courses

Historical and contemporary critical theory and contexts helps students develop a responsive and relevant art or design practice. Engage in current issues in art, design, and media such as sustainable material practices, art and design history, and the intersections of gender, race and accessibility in art and design. Learn how to describe, critique, and discuss your and other artists and designers' creative work using theoretical terminology, inquiry, and context. Locate your creative interests and methods within contemporary practices through seminar discussions, dynamic presentations, writing assignments, research, and diverse projects.
