Inside the Program

Students take part in citywide initiative to beautify downtown's Douglas Design District

Sometimes being an art student isn't just about what you get to do on campus. There are a multitude of opportunities to spread your creativity throughout the Wichita area.

Students in the "Introduction to Community & Social Practices" class took part in the citywide 2020 Vision initiative to create a street mural in the Douglas Design District.

Utilizing industrial paint sprayers and large 10x12 foot stencils, the students painted sections of the street in a modern, yet classical design to symbolize a unified community district and celebrates the diversity of the many small businesses and people that call the area home.


To complete the BAA in Media Arts degree with a concentration in collaborative design, you’ll take 120 credit hours comprised of general education requirements, electives and core courses spanning everything from audio production and coding to video storytelling and design thinking.


Thanks to WSU’s extensive network of employer connections, students in every major have opportunities to gain real-world experience—helping them build a resume, make professional connections and land their dream jobs.
