Illustration Concentration

Available on the Florham Campus, Madison, NJ
School of the Arts

The Illustration Concentration allows students to focus on developing a personal style, while practicing their craft.  Imagination and experimentation are encouraged, as students learn technique, traditional and digital media, and attention to detail.  Students learn to see themselves as designers and artists.

Trends in drawing, art, and design are taught, helping students find their passion in illustration, through concept development and practicing excellence,  Through a variety of exhibits, contests, and social media explorations, illustrators can showcase the projects they develop, thereby gaining recognition for their achievements.

Students have an opportunity to illustrate for a variety of important social causes throughout their time at FDU.  Creating powerful imagery that addresses critical social issues is an important focus in our program.   Designers can learn to use their work to increase public awareness of a variety of social issues, across the globe, as well as on an individual basis.

The FDU Design Studio allows students to gain real world experience as they work for real clients.  The possibilities at FDU are endless.
