Art and Design (B.F.A.) - Fibers Concentration

The B.F.A. concentration in Fibers (FIB) is a studio-intensive program of study focused on developing the aesthetic, conceptual, and technical skills necessary to foster creativity as students work toward expanding their individual identity as visual designers/artists. Emphasis in our program is placed on traditional and experimental uses of various fiber techniques. Exploration of a variety of materials and mixed media techniques are part of the innovative process to create unique wearable art garments, wall hanging artworks, or site-specific installations.
