Architectural Studies

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architectural Studies is a four-year, pre-professional program that provides students with a broad and interdisciplinary design education that will allow graduates an opportunity to pursue their interests and career paths from either architectural design, landscape architecture, urban design, or related building science disciplines such as energy modeling, sustainability, or historic preservation. The curriculum embraces an “atelier” design studio format that is complemented by three curricular groupings [History + Design Theory | Media + Presentation | Built Environment + Technology] within a traditional design studio classroom structure.  This format allows for a strong foundation and comprehensive investigation into the built environment. Graduates of the BFA in Architectural Studies program are qualified for entry-level positions in architecture, landscape architecture, historic preservation, urban design, and design-build construction firms. Graduates of the program wishing to become licensed in architecture, landscape architecture, or urban planning can pursue accredited graduate degrees, for architecture by the National Architectural Accreditation Board NAAB https://www.naab.org/ ,  for Landscape Architecture by the LAAB https://www.asla.org/schools.aspx , and for urban planning by the Planning Accreditation Board PAB http://www.planningaccreditationboard.org/ .

 

Students in the department can join the ECAD (Endicott College Architectural + Design Studies) an active student organization that is affiliated with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) allowing a direct connection to the professional architectural community.

Art Therapy

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Therapy is a four-year, pre-professional degree integrating three areas of study; studio art, psychology, and creative arts therapy courses. Art therapy at Endicott is primarily a studio visual art experience, yet maybe augmented with opportunities in dance, drama, music, and poetry. Students enter at their own levels of artistic development and, through a proven year of foundation courses, grow increasingly comfortable working in a variety of media. Over the course of study, each student is encouraged to discover his or her own treasury of personal creative resources, and in turn, share therapeutic properties with others. Students are encouraged to participate in national organizations such as the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), or the Society for the Arts in Healthcare (SAH). Although alumni have proven to be successful in securing meaningful positions in relevant fields, becoming a registered art therapist (ATR) is dependent upon completion of appropriate graduate education and post-graduate supervised experience. Board Certification (ATR-BC) is granted to registered art therapists who pass a written examination and requires continuing education.  Art therapy is a program for artistically talented students who want to apply their creativity for the well-being and benefit of others.

Graphic Design

Graphic designers bring order and clarity to the myriad graphic messages that saturate every aspect of daily life. In a world increasingly influenced by interactive media and time-based messaging, graphic designers have evolved from being makers of static ephemera. Designers today are collaborative and multidisciplinary information strategists, whose work involves effectively communicating complex messages and understanding the many ways in which those messages are received by audiences over time.

Training at Endicott for a career in the modern practice of graphic design includes traditional foundation-level and research-based skills as well as coursework that reflects the rapid pace of digital design technology. The BFA in Graphic Design addresses the steady morphing of the design profession to include interactive and time-based media among its required proficiencies, recognizing the growing number of post-graduate employment opportunities that specify interactive and front-end development skills in additional to the more traditional aspects of brand development.

In the graphic design curriculum, courses build in sequence so that students become thoroughly versed in the design process from concept to finished product. Students develop a growing body of knowledge and expertise in research, conceptualization, composition and layout, typography, and image creation, learning more advanced methods and techniques as the course sequence continues. Students develop their visual and conceptual acuity through traditional forms, such as print media, as well as through animation, video, web, and multimedia, developing both digital and traditional hand skills.

The BFA in Graphic Design includes two optional, recommended study tracks - advertising/brand development and web design/development - that leverage the resources available in both the School of Communication and computer science area, reflecting the need for collaborative coursework and technical skills within the modern design profession. These study tracks distinguish the Graphic Design program at Endicott by highlighting the unique interdisciplinary opportunities available to students who attend an “art school” within a liberal arts college.

In turn, Endicott’s liberal arts philosophy of education frames the graphic design curriculum to provide a broad understanding of historical, cultural, and social issues that deepen a student’s professional studies. The graphic design program is part of a holistic education that balances the professional major with coursework in the humanities, literature, science, mathematics, and the social sciences. Students learn the impact of communication design and images in a global environment along with skills needed to succeed in their respective fields. Opportunities also exist to study design abroad at formally affiliated schools, as well as through personally tailored independent studies.

Computer Requirements for Graphic Design Students

The School of Visual and Performing Arts requires that graphic design students purchase Apple laptop computers. Specifications are available from the school. They are also available in Academic Technology’s Student Computer Guide to Hardware/Software Recommendations.

Graphic Design Minor


Program Requirements


Students are required to take a minimum of 18 credits as follows:

Interior Architecture

Endicott’s interior architecture program is a four-year learning experience for students seeking professional practice in the design of interior architectural environments. The department’s goal is to provide students with problem-solving abilities and creative design skills to achieve success as the next generation of interior architecture professionals. An emphasis is placed throughout the curriculum on sustainable design and the built environment. The baccalaureate degree program is accredited by Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA).

The program employs an interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving in the interior architectural environment. The curriculum is comprehensive and includes residential, commercial and institutional design studios; history of art, architecture, and interior architecture; a design sequence that incorporates spatial experience, human factors, sustainable design, universal design, and business principles; with an integral internship component and service learning opportunities. The internship program in interior architecture prepares students to meet the challenges of an emerging field and see firsthand the integrated components that form the interior environment. Use of technology is essential to the program.

Students in the department can join the ECAD (Endicott College Architectural + Design Studies), an active student organization that is affiliated with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) allowing a direct connection to the professional architectural community.

Graduates of the baccalaureate program are qualified to join the interior design profession and undertake diverse project types. Upon completion of a two-year employment, graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam to achieve interior design certification recognized in 28 states in the United States.

 

Promotion and Graduation

Students must achieve a “C” or better in all interior design courses to remain in the interior design major. To obtain a “C” in an interior design course requires an average of 75 or better. Students must also have a 2.5 GPA each semester in order to progress in the program and be recommended for graduation from the interior architecture program. Interior architecture students may repeat one interior architecture course (once), and remain in the major. The student may not enroll in sequential interior architecture courses requiring the failed course as a prerequisite until earning a “C” or better in the repeated course.

 

Fifth Year Master of Art in Interior Architecture

Students who are enrolled and in good standing in the undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts program in interior architecture can apply for admission into the graduate program. Endicott interior architecture students will be exempt from six credits toward the Master of Arts degree in Interior Architecture. This allows Endicott interior architecture students to obtain a master’s degree by studying for only one additional year after successful completion of the 129-credit undergraduate, CIDA-accredited Bachelor of Fine Arts degree requirements at Endicott.

The Master of Arts in Interior Architecture program builds on the knowledge and skill of Endicott’s baccalaureate interior architecture program. The fifth-year program will provide graduates a unique opportunity to advance their knowledge and skill with an emphasis on a higher level of critical thinking and standards of professional practice, theory, and research in their selected area of concentration. The graduate areas of concentration (sustainability, commercial and institutional, healthcare, and residential) are available and respond to students’ future career paths and the design of complex interior environments.

In order to qualify for this program, a student must apply at the end of the junior year, maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and successfully complete Thesis II. After successfully passing Thesis II, students will continue on into the fifth year for the Master of Arts degree in the fall semester following their baccalaureate graduation.

In Constellation, the Endicott community’s first interfaith music ensemble, students engage in music making as a common pursuit, using their voices to sing and affirm one another’s spirituality. Meeting once a week, participants design, implement, and offer music in monthly, interfaith worship services, utilizing material from, or impacted by, a variety of styles, periods, faiths, and cultures. Though group singing is the ensemble’s focus, solos, spoken word, visual art, and playing instruments are encouraged. Constellation is offered as a course and a club.

Chamber Music Ensemble
Both a course and a club, the Chamber Music Ensemble allows students to play in small groups on any instrument. Focusing on classical repertoire and lighter fare, the group also performs as a small orchestra and prepares students for playing in the orchestra pit for student theater productions. Endicott shares a partnership with Symphony by the Sea, a professional orchestra north of Boston, and the Chamber Ensemble is able to work with their players throughout the year in class and in workshops. The Chamber Music Ensemble performs at special events and as part of the fall and spring showcase events.

Dance
The dance program at Endicott enables students to express their individuality and to become reflective, articulate individuals, as they study within a nurturing liberal arts atmosphere. The program prepares students for the multifaceted world of dance, teaches concepts for exploration and development that promote creativity, and cultivates students’ artistic abilities. Dance faculty and staff provide mentorship for students to reach their personal goals within the dance program and beyond. Students learn techniques in ballet, modern, contemporary, and many other genres from Endicott dance faculty and guest artists. Course topics include: techniques in multiple genres, the history of dance, mind body awareness, dance education, performance, and choreography. In addition to course offerings, multiple workshops and performance opportunities are available.

The Dance Minor
The dance minor is open to students majoring in any field, and students are not required to audition. The minor offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of dance in the areas of performance, history, production, and composition.

The dance minor requires a minimum of 18 credits, which include certain required courses and a range of electives. Several courses in the minor may also fulfill general education core requirements.

The Endicott Singers
The Endicott Singers is a versatile group of talented singers, winning the WGBH television competition Sing That Thing! In 2017. Both a credited class and a club, the group is, at times, a classical concert choir, a chamber choir, and a pop-style a cappella group. Members sing on and off campus at events such as the Intercollegiate Choral Festival, the holiday tour with the United States Air Force Band of Liberty, the Endicott College Holiday Open House, campus ceremonies, and at their own concerts throughout the year. In class, the group studies theory and harmony both in texts and in practice, using choral music to hone sight-reading skills and musical understanding. In performance, Endicott Singers brings music to life, performing everything from Vivaldi and Mozart to the Beatles and hip hop. Recently the Endicott Singers received a grant to perform a world premiere of a piece they commissioned by composer Elizabeth Alexander, with texts by student poets. Harmonelle is the all-women select chamber chorus. It is an auditioned group who sing all styles of music. Bassline is the all-men select chamber chorus. It is also an auditioned group who sing in all styles. Both groups are sub-sets of Endicott Singers and members participate in both groups.

Jazz Band
The Jazz Band, also known as Jazz/Rock Ensemble, is comprised of talented students from various majors on campus. The band’s repertoire focuses on modern popular styles of jazz, including: “cool” jazz; hard bop; rock and funk fusion of the 1970s and 1980s; and progressive new music by today’s top arrangers. This vibrant ensemble gives students the opportunity to improve their rhythmic skills, sound and intonation, and to enhance their ability to improvise. The Jazz Band performs at College events, such as the Intercollegiate Jazz Fest and the Endicott College Holiday Open House, and hosts concerts that are open to the public. Students may participate for credit or as a club activity.

The Modern Band Project
The Modern Band Project encourages students to compose and arrange original music to be performed by the ensemble in concert and at campus events. Students conceive of original pieces and bring them to fruition with various instrumentation and vocals over the course of the semester. This creative ensemble performs at campus events and in their own concerts, and it is often a launch pad for independent bands to form. College credit is given for participation in this ensemble, or students may participate as a club.

Music
The music curriculum is designed to provide students with proficiency in the fundamental areas of music: performance, music history, music theory, and composition. A wide variety of courses and private lessons provide a foundation for musical development at any level of undergraduate study. Endicott promotes music on campus and actively supports student progress in the area of performance. Students perform regularly at College events, and student ensembles offer concerts each semester. College credit may be earned for participation in the ensembles and for private instrumental and vocal lessons.

Several popular courses include Composing with Software and Songwriting, where students create their own compositions. Students create, record in the state-of-the-art ProTools recording studio, and edit their own material while learning about structural components of music to enhance their work. A course in improvisation offers students time to practice the skill of improvising in a structured setting. A host of courses in non-performance areas cover other facets of music such as the history and the socio-cultural conditions that surround various genres. Listening critically to music examples and understanding the characteristics that make up each style is also practiced.

The Music Minor
The music minor is open to students in any major, and no audition is required. It offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of music in the areas of performance, music history, theory, and composition. Private lessons in either instrumental or vocal music are an important component of the minor.

The minor requires a minimum of 18 credits, which include certain required courses and a range of electives. Several courses in the minor may also fulfill General Education core requirements.

Pep Band
Pep Band is a course and a club and it provides experience performing in a band with emphasis on instrumental music played at sports events. Students play popular tunes in support of athletic and other College events, and they participate in opportunities to celebrate and advance the College’s name and the reputation of the ensemble. Pep Band allows students to explore their musical interest, learn principles and foundations of music theory in practice, and connect with others to work collaboratively on musical pursuits.

Percussion Ensemble
Percussion Ensemble, both a course and a club, serves as a wonderful entrance place for many student musicians, and as a fitting challenge to experienced percussionists as well. Any student can join, regardless of experience, and engage in drumming basic patterns culled from many world rhythmic traditions. Students explore music foundation concepts in practice, learn performance skills, and experience a wide variety of percussive instruments from around the globe. Performers learn ensemble skills and perform at least once a semester.

Repertory Dance Ensemble
Both a credited course and a club, the Repertory Dance Ensemble is an audition-based group that gives students a chance to work with faculty and guest choreographers from around the country. Each semester brings a new production with a different cast, multiple genres, and choreographic processes. 

Theater
The College’s theater program consists of performance, studio, history, and seminar courses. Playwrights, actors, and stagecraft artists will develop, cultivate, and hone the skills they need to succeed in performance, design, and instruction (teaching), and become a prime candidate for graduate programs. 

Our theater courses emphasize collaborative skills and ensemble performance. In studio courses, students will study acting in-depth, exploring specified techniques such as the Stanislavski Method, Alexander, Meisner, Hagen, Adler, and Spolin Technique. Students will explore improv, stage combat, pantomime, puppetry, and devising to become confident, well rounded, performance artists. Studio courses emphasize technique, repertoire, presentation, and ultimately, creative performance or design projects. History courses provide the context for all theater practice and enhance students’ ability to perform, write about, promote, question, or collaborate with artists working in any theatrical style. Finally, seminar courses give students the theoretical foundation for their craft. Portfolio building, workshops, master classes, script analysis, and more help the artist to find their voice and contribute with confidence to the arts world. In addition to coursework, Endicott promotes theater on campus through the Performing Arts Department Mainstage shows. Between Mainstage productions, courses, and the Endicott Drama Club, Spotlight, students have frequent opportunities to perform for the public and participate in the technical aspects of shows. Classes are open to both the beginning and advanced student. Auditions are not required for coursework, and open auditions are held for all on-campus productions.

The Theater Minor
The theater minor is open to students majoring in any field, and students are not required to audition. The minor offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of theater in the areas of performance, history, technical theater, playwriting and dramatic literature, and directing. Private lessons in acting or music are an important component of the minor.

The theater minor requires a minimum of 18 credits, which include certain required courses and a range of electives. Several courses in the minor may also fulfill general education requirements.

Students studying the performing arts are encouraged to take advantage of the arts administration minor, designed to introduce students to the basic concepts, language, strategies, and challenges common to managerial and professional positions within visual and performing arts organizations. It provides students with insight into the day-to-day and annual operations in a variety of types of arts organizations. Combined with the appropriate major and concentration, the minor advances proficiencies for administrative and technical professions within non profit and educational arts institutions. Guest presenters include top administrators for Boston Ballet, Museum of Fine Arts, Massachusetts Cultural Council, Boston Lyric Opera, the Harvard Art Museums and many more.

Photography

The BFA in photography is broad in its approach, builds a comprehensive knowledge base, and provides students with an understanding of the skills, technologies, methods, and industry practices that are applicable to any type of photographic work. The program seeks to keep pace with the rapid evolution of photo editing software and hardware development, and the steady morphing of the photo profession to include time-based media among its required proficiencies. Further, the photography program leverages the breadth that a BFA provides by emphasizing the conceptual and creative development gained through foundation courses, art history, and thesis requirements.

Endicott’s photography program prepares students for a range of practice within the medium, including:

  • Editorial photographer
  • Wedding and portrait photographer
  • Fine art photographer
  • Photojournalist and documentary photographer
  • Digital retoucher and post-production artist
  • Photographic assistant with a focus on editorial, corporate or commercial work
  • Videographer
  • Graduate studies in photography

Given the well-publicized call for interdisciplinary and technical skills within the photography profession, many photography students already recognize the need for additional coursework in communication, business, and studio art.

Responding to these realities and trends, the BFA in Photography includes three recommended inter-disciplinary study tracks for areas of specific focus:

a.) Fine art photography
b.) Photojournalism and documentary studies
c.) Commercial photography

Such recommended study tracks distinguish Photography at Endicott by highlighting the unique interdisciplinary opportunities available to students who attend an “art school” within a liberal arts college. Students electing one of the tracks could study “photography with a focus” within a particular area of interest. In other words, while these tracks build on foundation-level skills established within the major, they also foster valuable and relevant interdisciplinary studies.

Computer Requirements for Photography Students

The School of Visual and Performing Arts requires that photography students purchase Apple laptop computers. Specifications are available from the school. They are also available in Academic Technology’s Student Computer Guide to Hardware/Software Recommendations.

Recent photography internship sites include:

  • Adrienne Jeanne Photography
  • Boston Magazine

Studio Art

Studio art students engage in a wide range of experiences through a studio-oriented program of study that is the most flexible of all of the art and design programs and that is supported by exposure to the liberal arts and experiential learning opportunities. Studio art majors can choose from three concentrations: 2-D: illustration, painting, and printmaking; 3-D ceramics, sculpture, and installation; and Intermedia digital media and mixed media combined with traditional media. In addition to the B.F.A. requirements, students learn color theory, figure drawing, and photography, and they focus in one of the following areas: 2-D, 3-D, or Intermedia. Finally, students choose additional art elective courses of personal interest. These courses include but are not limited to digital painting, character development and illustration, advanced ceramics sculpture, advanced painting, bookmaking, and printmaking. Studio art students may also take graphic design, interior design, and photography courses as their art electives.

Through their coursework and internship experiences, studio art students become professionally engaged. They are introduced to museum and gallery practices, exhibition design, marketing techniques, the roles of curators and art directors, traditional and digital portfolio development, and employment and graduate school options. Many studio art majors choose to pursue one of Endicott’s art minors, which include art history, arts administration, and creative arts therapy.
