The College of Design at Iowa State University is one of the nation’s most comprehensive institutions for art and design education. Few other institutions, public or private, can boast the impressive array of disciplines we support under one collegiate “roof.” This leads to a strong, multidisciplinary network of design thinking that directly benefits you. As a student in the College Design, you’ll work alongside your peers from majors including architecture, landscape architecture, biological/pre-medical illustration, studio arts, planning, and industrial, graphic, interdisciplinary and interior design to earn a well-rounded education and build valuable relationships for the future.
