Explore, experience, and participate in the communication, performing, and visual arts at SU.

In our programs in the School of Design, we’ll teach you how to learn more about your design field of interest while we prepare you to learn to meet the real-world challenges faced in today’s creative industries, businesses, and organizations.


No matter what field of design you're interested in, the School of Design will give you a strong framework on which you can build a successful career. You can develop your individual voice and vision by applying what you learn through internships that connect you with professionals in your chosen field. You'll also benefit from our new location on the Owings Mills North Campus, a facility that has state-of-the-art equipment and settings for you to hone your skills in your major. Our goal is for you to graduate as an emerging, practicing professional who is prepared to hit the ground running.
