2016-17 Catalog

Art, Architecture, and Design

The three primary disciplines of the Department of Art, Architecture and Design share a common focus on design, visual literacy, the creative process and the making of the built environment. The emphasis on design as a broad concept begins to shape aesthetic principles, and initiates the structuring of the individual’s creative process. To that end, the department offers undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degrees in four majors: art, architecture, design, and art history. Minor programs are available in studio art, architecture, graphic design, product design, history of the visual arts, history of architecture, and museum studies.

Many studio courses require department permission. The student interested in enrolling in any of the department’s courses should contact the program coordinator to schedule an appointment with an advisor well before preregistration so that he or she can be rostered at the appropriate time.

An art major centers on studio education wherein principal disciplines such as drawing, sculpture, painting and photography are explored. The student is required to engage in an intense concentration in studio work at Lehigh and when appropriate at other Lehigh Valley colleges that offer complementary courses. Studio work is enhanced by courses in history and theory, both within the department and throughout the university.

For the student interested in becoming a creative artist, the major provides a foundation for a life in art, or more immediately the potential path into a graduate degree program in fine art. A major in art may be combined with theater for those interested in costume design, or with architecture and theater for those who aspire to be set designers. A major in art combined with a minor in education is available for students interested in becoming primary, secondary or special education art teachers.

The architecture major is a pre-professional course of study focused on architectural design studios, complemented by art studios, history and theory courses, and introductory materials and building technology courses. The major results in a Bachelor of Arts degree.

The architecture major is a comprehensive undergraduate education that is the first step in a series of educational and apprenticeship requirements leading to professional registration. Architecture majors regularly go on to the most respected graduate schools of architecture, with Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, and Washington University in St. Louis, among scores of institutions, actively seeking Lehigh graduates for their programs.

Alternatively, many architecture majors choose to work in fields allied to the discipline, such as interior design, adaptive reuse building, historic preservation, construction management, real estate development, etc. Since for such paths professional architectural registration is not required, the Lehigh degree alone is the springboard to various careers that involve the making of the built environment.

(The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in architecture should not be confused with the Bachelor of Architecture, a professional five-year degree. Those students who major in architecture and graduate with the Bachelor of Arts degree and wish to pursue a professional career in architecture will be required to obtain a Master of Architecture from an institution offering a graduate program in architecture.)

The Arts-Engineering program, a five-year, dual-degree course of study, allows students to link complementary disciplines of engineering and architecture. The result is two degrees from two different colleges within Lehigh, one a professional degree in engineering, one the pre-professional degree in architecture.

A design major engages students with new technologies, materials and media in developing the creative processes and critical thinking necessary for the modern designer. The major centers on studio wherein an emphasis on visual communication through digital media is complemented by the traditional focus on art making. Courses in art and design history and theory and in specific media techniques supplement the series of required studios.

A student may take a range of department courses in design or may choose a specific concentration in either graphic design or product design. The graphic design concentration introduces students to the tools and media related to print applications, web-based media, exhibition design, publishing and advertising. Product design concerns the creation of objects used in industrial applications, art objects, furniture, toys, exhibits and trade design, electronic products, household items and recreational equipment.

An art history major provides students with a comprehensive education in the history of art and architecture, and an opportunity to learn about the changing form and status of the visual arts and built environment in culture and society. Through introductory and advanced coursework, as well as museum and site visits, students learn how to examine, evaluate, and interpret works of art and architecture, and acquire a working knowledge of the methods, theories and research practices of art historical analysis.

The study of art and its history is a vital and fundamental part of a liberal arts education, and art history is unique among academic fields in the breadth and diversity of its objects of study: drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking; architecture, design, and urban planning; photography and film; material culture; as well as a variety of other cultural forms. Students majoring in art history go on to careers in art, architecture, design, curating, communications, imaging, advertising, education, and many other fields. The major also provides an important foundation for students who plan to pursue advanced graduate studies in the arts and humanities. Art history majors choose one of three areas of concentration: history of the visual arts, history of architecture, or museum studies.

All programs are philosophically cross-disciplinary, as students are encouraged to take advantage of the many learning environments that constitute a university. Significant resources for all disciplines in the department include the Lehigh University permanent art collection and archives as well as the numerous on-campus galleries and the Zoellner Art Center. Students are encouraged to make use of the collections and facilities to enhance and enrich studios and courses, and to help shape their own creative work.

The department offers minor programs in studio art, architecture, graphic design, product design, history of the visual arts, history of architecture, museum studies that are available to all undergraduate students. The purpose of these minor programs is to enable students from any major to be introduced to the studio practices of art, architecture, and design, and to help form an understanding of the role that art plays in human history and culture.

Departmental Honors

Exceptional students in art, architecture or design may apply for department honors at the end of their junior year or the beginning of their senior year. To be eligible, a student must have attained a 3.5 GPA in the major program and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0. Candidates should submit to the department chair a written proposal, prepared in consultation with a faculty member who will serve as honors sponsor. The project could result in a research paper, design project, or exhibition. Successful completion of the project will result in a “Department Honors” designation being affixed to the student’s transcript.
