No-Major Option

If you are interested in architecture, art, art education, interior design, or graphic design, but are undecided about making a commitment to these fields, you can choose one of the no-major programs. Before choosing this option, however, you must talk with a School of Creative Arts divisional adviser. Students who choose this option must fulfill departmental admission requirements before being admitted as a major. In many programs of study, it will take longer than four years to complete the professional requirements for your bachelor's degree.

The following one-year programs allow you to choose a broad range of electives and sample fine arts courses on a space-available basis:
