Meet the Dean
Thank you for your interest in the School of Design at Stevenson University—the place on campus for creative communications across media and materials: from fabric to film to Facebook. Students in the School of Design majoring in Business Communications, Fashion Design, Film and Moving Image, and Visual Communication Design are prepared to pursue careers in innovative fields ranging from advertising, art direction, and public relations to cinematography, costume design, motion pictures, or motion graphics.
While there are wide-ranging options to choose from in the School of Design, there is a unique focus on human-centered problem solving taught in inspired project-based learning environments.
In small classes, expert faculty get to know student’s individual goals and aspirations so they may guide them in the direction of their dreams, while providing the skills and foundations necessary to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground. The rigorous curriculum in all programs provides students with opportunities to put theory into practice, applying theoretical principles, emerging technologies, and business acumen to their professional projects and internship experiences.
I invite you to learn more about our excellent programs and the passionate and successful students and faculty in the School of Design at Stevenson University.
