Visual media entertains, informs, motivates. Whether it's the artist’s sketch or a computer generated animation, the task is very much the same: to communicate to an audience the ideas, messages and content by involving the viewer in the experience. The interdisciplinary program of Visualization focuses on the processes of creation, design and development of the visual experience.
The Department of Visualization is structured to develop the student’s artistic, scientific and technical abilities and to provide a specialized skill set for creating visual experiences based upon a synthesis of interdisciplinary knowledge.
A required semester away provides the opportunity to study abroad in one of several foreign studies programs or to serve an internship in an industry related to the student’s area of interest.
