Directed Study: Mentorship (Spring Semester)

GRDS799   3.5 - 9 credits

Students produce academic texts related to design that are historical, critical, and/or theoretical. Through mentorship, students will begin to establish a body of work that can and should contribute to contemporary design discourse. Communication via digital technologies, telephone, or face-to-face meetings all contribute to the mentorship process. Publication material in digital or analog form is required.
