Graphic & Digital Design Major

Drury University > Department of Design and Visual Arts > Graphic & Digital Design Major

The Graphic & Digital Design major is appropriate for students who:

  • Wish to pursue a career in graphic design, web development, commercial photography, art direction, and multimedia artists; or
  • Plan to seek admittance into a graduate program in fine arts, in which additional Advanced Studio coursework and a second major in art history or fine arts is highly recommended.

Prior to selecting the Graphic and Digital Design major, students should consult with their advisor and program director of art and art history. All students who decide to major in art history, Graphic and Digital Design, or fine arts should officially elect a faculty member from the department as their formal advisor and consult with that faculty member prior to course registration each semester.

Please note that ARTZ 111: Foundations of Studio and Design is offered in the fall semester only.  ARTZ 496: Apex Studio is to be taken in the spring semester of the year the student graduates.

The Graphic and Digital Design Major requires a minimum of 36 credit hours.

All prerequisites must be completed prior to enrollment in the following courses.

Courses used as electives for one art or art history major or minor may not also satisfy electives for another art or art history major or minor.

Only one advanced studio in each medium can count toward a major. When a student has taken all the advanced studios (ARTZ 301, 302, 401, 402) in a studio area, no more advanced studios can be taken in that area. Advanced studios cannot be used as electives in any minor offered by the art and art history

Students are required to complete a “Permission to Register for Special Coursework” form to enroll in advanced studios (ARTZ 301, 302, 401, 402).
