Independent Study

DGMD999    1-6 credits

Advanced Concept Development

Develops the creative and problem solving skills needed to be an effective artist and designer. Regardless of their area of concentration, students learn techniques for overcoming creative block. Students learn the skills needed to either lead a team or participate as an effective member of a creative team.

Advanced Tools and Techniques

Students extend their expertise and knowledge in one of these areas: motion graphics, character animation, filmmaking, or visual effects.

Practicum in Media Technologies

“It’s the artist, not the software.” While students work a great deal with many programs, their value to employers comes from their skills as artists and designers, coupled with their “people skills.” In this course, students extend their skills in creating pieces that show off their talents.

Business Seminar I/II

This course provides a practical introduction to skills for acquiring and keeping a job, as well as the processes for developing a freelance business. Students learn presentation techniques and practical business concepts, from accounting and personal finances to business communications and networking.

Senior Thesis

Students develop their own final projects. Class and professional critiques help students develop their work, while learning from the creative processes of their classmates. Students collect their work from drawing classes, their storyboards, and other parts of the creative process, to be used as windows into their personal working styles.

Thesis Preparation

Students are given the time to work on their senior projects. Storytelling, storyboarding, and other issues are discussed in relationship to students’ personal or group projects. Critiques are a vital part of this process and assist the students in understanding their own creative processes, as well as those of others.
