Art school is about mastering the fundamentals: wood to canvas to film, and anything that makes an interesting mark. But in an age of augmented reality and 3D printing, artists need to be familiar with more tools than before.

That's why Dolphin Design Center was created specifically for designers in the 21st century, with state-of-the-art fabrication and design spaces that support the multidisciplinary ways creative makers work. Home to the B.F.A. programs in Architectural Design, Game Design, Interactive Arts, and Product Design, the Dolphin Design Center provides students with the materials and tools they need to design and make whatever they can imagine.
