Three primary divisions--Art, Art History, and Design--make up the foundation of the School of Art at the UW. The Division of Art gives students the skills necessary to produce art in a studio environment and think critically about issues from an historic and cultural point of view. The Division of Art History promotes the investigation of cultures under visual, philosophic, and historic contexts through research and analysis. The Division of Design operates under the principles of visual communication and human centered needs, through graphic design and industrial design.
The UW School of Art’s Division of Design is in the process of redeveloping it’s programs. Students interested in applying to Visual Communication Design and/or Industrial Design—two programs in the Division of Design—should be aware that a new curriculum and application process will be in place autumn 2005. These changes not only enlarge the scope of design taught at the UW Seattle, but also allow us to double the number of students we can admit to these very popular, but competitive design programs. The following describes how to prepare to transfer to the UW and apply to the Design Programs and what to expect once you have been accepted into the program.
