2023-2024 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Transfer Review All students who wish to transfer from another college or university and enroll at Cedarville University as either an industrial and innovative design, studio art, or visual communication design major on the junior or senior level must submit along with their application a digital portfolio with images of two- and three- dimensional work representing collegiate classroom work and art done outside the classroom. The art and design faculty will review this material before acceptance into the program is granted. Capstone Exhibition or Project In addition to the expectation of participation in student and other exhibitions throughout the college experience, all art and design majors are required to exhibit a level of performance for graduation that meets the requirements and standards of the department. For all majors, the capstone requirement is a senior exhibition or project as approved by the department chair. Course Fees Lab classes that provide supplies and/or University-provided equipment require fees. These fees do not necessarily cover all the costs for student art materials or personal tools. A portion of the lab fees is utilized for program expenses and costs incurred that directly and indirectly support the needs for program courses. Program Tuition: Industrial and Innovative Design As a premium program (and in lieu of individual course fees, text books, major project supplies and technology fees while at the ICC), note that IID block tuition during the two years at the ICC is different from general block tuition. The rates can be viewed online at cedarville.edu/costs in the “Other Tuition Rates” section. Theatre Requirements Students complete courses in the history, theory, research, and ethics of theatre. Students are required to complete a senior capstone project in research, production, internship, performance, design or directing to graduate. The nature of the project is determined by the emphasis area of the student. Technical Resources Art and design students render and complete class assignments in fully equipped Macintosh computer labs using industry-standard software. A modern theatre and accompanying equipment and facilities are available to theatre majors. The computer network provides tools for research and design. Cocurricular Opportunities All art and design students are invited to join one or several student organizations within the department including The Studio, and the University student chapter of AIGA.
