Art & Design
Thinkers + Makers
Students in UI’s Art + Design program are thinkers and makers. Their work, as artifact or experience, causes reflection, challenges societal assumptions and serves the needs of the built, natural and cultural environments we occupy. Faculty and students are engaged in creative conversation throughout the Pacific Northwest, while their thought and practice extends far beyond.
Moscow’s rural location on the Palouse nurtures a strong teaching and learning environment that makes the UI studio culture and campus experience unique.
Our programs serve students seeking a professional career in the creative economy. Concept-driven discipline areas are inter-dependent and model integration, resourcefulness and adaptability. We cultivate critical thinking, self-reflection, curiosity and leadership in our students by challenging them with critical discourse, written reflection and professional engagement opportunities.
