A combination of studio and academic classes are required.

The Art – Integrated Visual Studies major at Colorado State University enables students to organize multiple approaches to visual thinking that cut across various disciplines into a logical whole. Integrated visual studies students will have the curricular flexibility to pursue other academic interests and extracurricular activities with greater intensity, as well as to pursue explorations in the theoretical and technical aspects of art-making within a studio practice.

Integrated Visual Studies students will demonstrate:

  • Communication skills in written and oral form with precision, cogency, and rhetorical force.
  • The ability to explain and defend creative/research effectively and rationally; advocating for their world view.
