Offering a BFA in Design & Production, Millikin University has the advantages of a large program at a small university. Students can explore several areas of design and technology, but ultimately choose their own specialty. Students have the opportunity to graduate with two realized designs. From the first semester, students complete projects worthy of including in their portfolios. There is an emphasis on portfolio and career preparation in this production focused program.
