Interior Architecture and Design Major (M)
Addressing the whole student - body, mind and spirit, the purposes of the Art Program are 1) to nourish the senses (particularly the visual and tactile) in order to make the student more perceptive and visually responsive to life experiences and visual phenomena; 2) to cultivate the mind to design and solve problems through manipulating media in search of elegant, aesthetic and technically proficient solutions; and 3) to encourage and support Christian faith and practice by exploring the intersection of the visual arts and Christianity and leading the student through incarnational processes that translate intangible substance (concepts and emotions) into tangible material. It is a purpose of the Concordia University Program in Art to produce graduates who, as people of faith, are diligent, reflective, compassionate, highly skilled, visually articulate, and successful in their lives and in their vocations.
Interior Architecture and Design (IA&D) is a Cooperative Program with MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design) and includes 24 credits to be completed at MIAD. To enroll in MIAD courses, students must have a 3.50 minimum GPA in all prior course work in the major. Students majoring in IA&D learn basic construction techniques, model construction and digital rendering. IA&D majors are prepared to work directly with architects in the design of interior spaces.
For specific information about MIAD courses please visit the MIAD website at www.miad.edu.
