names, names, names

You know how someone named James might be Jim, Jimmy, Jamie, etc? Or a Catherine might be nicknamed Cathy, Kate, Cat, or (yes even) Cassie?

A recent project opened my eyes to the many options one has when naming not just people, but departments within schools. If anyone ever needs to know what exactly to look up when reserching art & design schools and their departments, here's a short list of possible titles:

Studio Arts
Art & Design
Fine Arts
Media Arts
Arts & Letters
Creative Arts
Graphic Design
Visual Arts
Digital Arts

There are more, but I left my main list (I started keeping track) at my home office.

Anyway, just thought I'd share this tidbit with you.
