While many schools separate the study of art and design, we combine the disciplines to better prepare students for an adaptable career in a fast-paced world of ever-changing creative needs. Through the strong liberal arts education that Butler provides, students graduate with the creative, communication, and critical-thinking skills it takes to pursue multiple career options post-graduation.
