Description

Courses in the College Core are generalist in scope and introduce students to major themes, central concepts, and modes of making in art, design and film. College Core integrates these areas through an interdisciplinary approach, revealing their similarities and interconnection. Students develop skills in the College Core that are transferable among the Schools. Manual and digital technologies are incorporated into the curriculum. Writing, reading, and research are also integrated into the courses to help students realize the connection among art history, critical reading and writing, and their studio practice. Students work individually and collaboratively, engaging in an artistic community and using the city as a resource.

Learning Objectives

  • expose students to diverse ways of thinking creatively, experimenting imaginatively and making art inventively

  • support students’ transition to the University
  • promote the integration of practice with research, analysis, and reflection
  • foster critical thinking, cultural and historical understanding, and analytical skills by incorporating seminar content and linking studio courses with Liberal Arts courses
  • encourage interaction among students of diverse educational backgrounds and interests
  • increase cross-disciplinary activity
  • enable collaboration
  • strengthen community
