  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

What LAS courses do I need for my major?

Please go to the Course Catalogues. The one for you is dated to your Foundation or what would be your Foundation year if you transferred. Look under "Degree Requirements" for a full listing of what LAS courses you will need to take to complete your major. Also see Breakdown of LAS Courses.

When do I take my Liberal Arts & Science courses?
Foundation your LAS courses are determined by the section you selected.
Sophomores take courses Monday at 3:15 pm and all day Tuesdays.
Juniors take courses all day Wednesdays and 8:00 - 11:00 am on Fridays.
Seniors take courses on Thursday.

How am I advised for Liberal Arts & Sciences?
Advisement is a two step process:

LAS generates an advisement form based on the requirements for your major. The recommended LAS courses are filled out on the bottom of the advisement form by the LAS Academic Advisor. 
The form is then sent to your Studio department.  

We expect each student to take the courses listed on their advisement form. However, if there are any questions or concerns regarding your LAS courses please contact the Academic Advisor, Marsha Hopkins, t (310) 665 6944, email lasadvising@otis.edu

Once you have a complete advisement form, you register online.

What if I am interested in taking an Independent Studies course? 
Preconditions: There is not a similar class being offered (now or later that you could take), your overall GPA is 3.0, a faculty member listed on the LAS door wants to study with you, or you completed the honors program.

Procedure: Write a letter to the chair of LAS, Debra Ballard, outlining your proposed course of study, what you want to do, and who you will do it with. Also address the above preconditions. Debra Ballard will then meet with you to discuss your Independent Study proposal.

What if I have Transfer Credit?
Transfer credit is determined by the Admissions office during the application for enrollment process. 
All transcripts from all schools should be submitted at that time. 
If you have any questions regarding your Transfer credit after you have registered for classes, you should contact the LAS office.
