Integrated 3D (I3D) students explore the technical, formal, conceptual, and cultural overlaps between sculpture, ceramics, fiber, and metals.

Integrated 3D students complete a beginning and intermediate course in each 3D medium. This develops a strong, broad skill base, 3D visualization and thinking skills, habits of investigation with a 3D perspective, and knowledge of contemporary practices in 3D media.

Students also complete a 6 to 12 credit concentration in their chosen medium and two capstone courses to further develop and refine specialized technical, analytical, and creative skills as well as help students to prepare for professional practice.

Upon completion of the degree, Integrated 3D students will be well prepared to pursue professional production and exhibition of their own art, or more in-depth study at the graduate level.
