on Monday,November 30,2009 21:11
In a bit of good news for aspiring designers and artists located throughout the Tar Heel State, North Carolina''s High Point University has recently announced the founding of a new school of art and design.
HPU''s inaugural class of designers will have the option to pursue baccalaureate degrees in art, graphic and interior design through the combination of established and new course listings created for the program.
The school already boasts a successful interior design program, thanks largely to the university''s location at High Point, proclaimed by some to be "the furniture capital of the world." The program will work closely with local industries through a series of partnerships including internship programs.
"In an attempt to bring greater attention to these programs and to develop a specialized school that would have a special significance in High Point we essentially decided to ''bring together'' these departments and majors into one school," says HPU''s Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Dennis Carroll.
The establishment of this addition will also create jobs in the region as the school seeks new faculty, administrators and staff.
