College Launches Concentration in Sustainability and Social Practice in Fall 2011

Program is First of its Kind Among Art Colleges

The Concentration in Sustainability and Social Practice--the first of its kind among art colleges--prepares students to engage their creative practice with the social and ecological issues facing the world today, earning the knowledge, language and skills necessary to excel in this emerging field.

While higher education has seen a rapid growth of programs in these areas, until recently, these have been largely restricted to the fields of science, engineering and medicine. This new concentration allows visual artists to connect their practice with these global issues and prepares them to become professionally engaged in the areas of sustainability and social practice as artists, designers, entrepreneurs or scholars.

The issues of sustainability and social practice are not specific to any one field, material or discipline, and, as such, this 15-credit concentration is a cross-departmental program open to all majors. To learn more details about the new concentration, visit the website here.
