On behalf of the School of Design and Creative Technologies, I want to extend a warm welcome. Whether you’re a current or prospective student, staff or faculty member, a parent or just curious about what we do, you belong here. I encourage you to browse our website to learn more about our academic offerings and programs.
In the Department of Design, students are empowered to excel in the design profession, be it graphic design, industrial design, product design, or any other discipline involving design skills. Undergraduate students may pursue either a B.A. or B.F.A. in Design, both of which prepare them for success after graduation. Graduate students may study for their M.F.A. in Design or M.A. in Design focused on Design in Health, an innovative new partnership between SDCT, the Design Institute for Health and Dell Medical School.
The Department of Arts and Entertainment Technologies fuses technology and creativity, innovating through a diversity of ideas, experiences, and collaboration. The first Bachelor of Science offered in the College of Fine Arts, AET prepares students for careers in the arts and entertainment industries through coursework in game design, themed entertainment, music and sound, motion graphics and video, immersive media, interactive storytelling, and other creative technology fields.
The Center for Integrated Design is a popular destination for students within the College of Fine Arts and beyond, with over 300 students enrolled in our on-campus and off-campus offerings. I’m proud to say that we offer many new CID courses each semester to give students even more depth in their particular area of study, including design studio partnership courses with companies like IBM, argodesign, and McKinsey & Co.
Our Industry Relations team assists students with finding internships and jobs through one-on-one meetings, resume reviews, and connecting our programs with key industry leaders. Their Weekly Updates newsletter contains employment and internship openings, events, funding opportunities, and more. If you are a current student who would like to meet with Industry Relations, please reach out!
I continue to be inspired by the support and enthusiasm we’ve received since SDCT's inception in 2017. Our unique position on maintaining a reactive curriculum is critical to supporting college-to-career trajectories, and the work we’re doing supports our students as they go out into the creative economy.
As always, my door is open. I’m eager to meet all of you as we continue on this creative journey together.
Proudly your Assistant Dean,
