A design minor will introduce you to the principles of working with design software and design theory, as well as the critical thinking skills and interpersonal skills unique to the profession of design. Many art majors minor in design to improve their computer design skills and become familiar with the industry, as well as learn how to produce promotional materials as it relates to being a professional artist.
Northwestern has shown me how to relate to the world in a Christ-like manner. The college helped me find a way to incorporate my faith and beliefs in everything I do: graphic design, art, relationships, etc. My design professor has been like a mentor to me. His passion for helping students express their creativity while praising God has been a source of inspiration.
What will I learn?
You will develop critical thinking skills, learn to analyze, and develop an eye for detail.
