The Color Specialization has been discontinued, and is not available for enrollment. The information provided below is for students who are finishing up the minor.




Color plays a major role in our daily lives, and the color industry holds a significant sector in business. Both national and international companies conduct color research on products such as textiles, paints, cars, and clothes. Color is also a growing area with developers in community and neighborhood design and remains an important component of marketing and packaging goods and ideas. In fact, major employers in the region hire employees to focus specifically on the color aspect of their industries. The Color specialization provides students with the opportunity to learn about the dynamic and complex field of color from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
