Studio Arts and Technology, BA


About the Program

The BA in Studio Arts and Technology is a new and innovative undergraduate major offered by the Department of Art and Design. In today’s world the lines between the arts, technology, engineering, and the sciences are increasingly blurred. The leaders of tomorrow must possess a solid foundation in the traditional arts as well as expertise in new technologies and innovative ways of thinking. The Studio Arts and Technology degree builds on Purdue’s reputation as a leader in technology and its emerging voice as an innovator in the Arts. Today’s artist must be well versed in one’s discipline but also possess the tools to be able to reach a fast paced, computer and media based culture. Studio Arts and Technology gives students these tools. Students entering the program have a wide range of options open to them in selecting courses and designing their program. From painting, drawing printmaking, textiles and ceramics to robotic art, digital media, video art and new media culture, the program speaks a contemporary language while still building on the great traditions in art.

Critical Course


The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
