    Department Statement

    Now, more than ever, the world needs an abundance of creative thinkers and practitioners. Without individuals who think differently, who can reimagine reality and reinvent the rules, we will never solve the complex challenges of today. In April 2009, Arizona State University created The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts to address this challenge. Our Institute is built on a combination of disciplines unlike any other program in the nation, comprising schools of: Art; Arts, Media and Engineering; Design; Film, Dance and Theatre; Music as well as the ASU Art Museum and Future Arts Research at ASU. At a time when many universities are choosing to reduce or eliminate studies in design and arts disciplines, ASU has elevated creative practice to one of the core values of the nation's largest research institution.
