Scientific illustration bridges the divide between the arts and sciences, recording and communicating the wonders of nature. The use of illustration allows for a focus on details that convey the essential attributes of a subject with accuracy and aesthetics. Students in this minor learn a formal and codified form of communication that involves various media and a range of subject matter, from the telescopic to the microscopic, to visualize the amazing aspects of this and other worlds—past, present and future.
