Interdisciplinary Art + Design

In CCS’s Interdisciplinary Art + Design Program, thinkers, makers and doers forge their own paths as they investigate and ultimately redefine the boundaries of contemporary art and design.

CCS’s Interdisciplinary Art + Design program provides a dynamic, studio-based art and design program that combines the strengths of our renowned studio disciplines with strategic mentoring and a flexible curriculum structure so you can experience a course of study tailored to your unique skills and goals.

Our program offers maximum flexibility for students whose interests do not fit into the categories of a traditional visual arts education and who aim to explore theory in conjunction with studio practice.

The Interdisciplinary Art + Design major will equip students with foundational skills, historical perspectives, and critical thinking abilities. Through a combination of strategic mentoring focused on individual students’ goals, skills, and needs, major studios designed to foster innovation through both conceptual and applied practice, and the opportunity to select key courses from our diverse art and design offerings, you will gain a broad knowledge base for pursuing your creative interests.

Flexibility & Transfer Support

The uniquely flexible nature of Interdisciplinary Art + Design makes it a great choice for transfer students, allowing for degree completion in as little as two years for students who have completed an eligible studio-based associate’s degree or equivalent. If you are looking to transfer to CCS an admissions representative can discuss the ways the Interdisciplinary Art + Design program can help you reach your goals.
