Stony Brook University needs more art students. Stony Brook is a leading university in fields of Science, Technology, and Medicine. As an art student, I am able to see the enormous benefit that these fields, when combined with the arts, will provide to humankind. As the art budget as Stony Brook is cut, and more funding is provided to the sciences, the detriment that defunding the arts has upon all other fields becomes more and more apparent. If Stony Brook had a larger arts program, students could become involved in ground-breaking projects related to health sciences and the arts. Design is fundamental to health and medicine. Stony Brook University needs to have a greater dialogue between and amongst different disciplines. Interdisciplinary studies produce the most beneficial technologies.
