Art and Science

The two disciplines of art and science are resoundingly different, especially from the perspective of curriculum design and degree requirements. Yet there are interesting overlaps between the two areas that artists and designers are actively exploring. Many art-and-science courses have the aim of creating a culture of creative thinkers from the arts and from the sciences who join together to combine their knowledge and abilities to come up with innovations, collaborations, and most of all, new ways to address environmental concerns. Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to this area called Art and Science.

SAIC is committed to experimentation and to interdisciplinary thinking. The Areas of Study reveal arenas of curricular overlap among multiple departments. The goal of the Areas of Study course listings is to make SAIC’s interdisciplinary curriculum more accessible to both current and prospective students.
