The B.A. or B.S. degree in Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) is an individualized, multidisciplinary degree which allows students flexibility in designing degree programs that relate to their personal academic and career goals. Students will complete the University Core Curriculum requirements, take a cohesive set of courses from two different content areas (cognates), and complete a Multidisciplinary Capstone Experience (3 hours). This degree program will provide a path to achieve baccalaureate degrees for those students whose interests lie in multiple areas and/or whose accumulated semester credit hours may not otherwise combine to qualify them for one of AU's existing baccalaureate degrees.

Fine Arts Our majors in the fine arts offer concentrations in painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and digital art. These majors prepare students for careers as professional artists or for post graduate studies. Students begin with introductory drawing, design, and art history classes in the foundations sequence. Upper level work in the students' concentration area, as well as electives from the other areas, gives graduates well-rounded art training that allows them to develop creative ideas in a variety of media. A year-round program of exhibitions in the gallery by serious fine artists allows students the opportunity to deepen and expand ideas through constant exposure to new concepts and techniques. A student exhibition with cash awards, juried by an outside juror, gives students the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional setting. Students interested in the B.F.A. degree must receive approval from the individual area professor, confirmed by the department faculty.

The commercial art program is accomplished in one of two ways: either by completing courses entirely at AU or for other concentrations not available at AU, through AU s affiliation with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Graphic Design or Digital Video Production are both offered completely at Ashland University. Those choosing to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh spend their first two years at Ashland taking the foundations sequence and the university core requirements. Their junior year is usually spent at the Art Institute taking upper-level classes in one of the following areas of concentration: game art & design, graphic design, industrial design technology, interactive media design, interior design, media arts and animation, video production, photography or visual effects, and motion graphics. Students then return to Ashland for their senior year, receiving a baccalaureate degree upon graduation and a certification in their field.
