The Department of Art + Design prepares you to be a creative thinker and designer.

The Department of Art + Design prepares you to be a creative thinker and designer.


You will study both art and the business of art, how to see, and also how to communicate. You'll learn to find problems, and how to solve them. And you'll learn how to build, how to destroy, and how to reform the world into something new.

Accredited since 1978 by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), Sage offers something for every type of creative thinker. Our Art + Extended Media program expands the possibilities of what a BFA studio art degree can be. Interior + Spatial Design will challenge your assumptions about interior design. And our Graphic + Media Design program is a nationally recognized BFA that combines traditional graphic design with media-rich technology.

No matter what your specialty, as a Sage graduate you'll emerge with a portfolio suitable for a career as a professional artist, or for pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree. You'll develop an authentic, original voice, and learn to redefine what's possible in the arts, industry, and beyond.
