‘Meet Our Majors’ events: Determining your path in art and design school

. . .

Tuesday, May 18th, 2021

Trying to determine whether art and design school is the right move for you — and then sorting through the different pathways open to you once you arrive — is a lot easier when you can talk to people who teach and help guide students once they settle on art school, and who can explain the creative career options that different majors open to you.

PCA&D has scheduled a series of online Meet Our Majors conversations, a chance to talk to faculty, students, and staff from five PCA&D majors and Liberal Arts Department, as well as professors from our first-year, or Foundation Year, experience.
