Set &Exhibit Design

I want to set my own path.

When you watch a film, video, or TV show, you follow the plot, the script and the actors. But your focus is on the look...the sets, the lighting, the details that establish a certain time, place, and mood. You don’t see those things as mere backdrops. To you, they’re every bit as important as the stars. And maybe you see yourself in a career where you help design and build sets for movies, theme parks, or museums—or create trade show booths, retail spaces, and educational exhibits. The place to start is our Set & Exhibit Design degree program. Here, the first thing you'll build is a set of skills as strong as your desire to make an impact on the world. You'll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively-driven students. And you’ll be taught, challenged and pushed harder than ever before by experienced faculty* who’ll also support you every step of the way. With your hard work and our education, you can build a career where you do what you love.

*Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.
