Core Studio

Core Studio

CORE Studio provides robust interdisciplinary experience in a broad array of digital applications, traditional and hybrid media and experimental processes. Designed to complement your work within your area of specialization, CORE ensures that you’ll collaborate with students from other majors

First-year courses develop essential software skills through practice in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign.

You'll also take intro courses dedicated your major, emphasizing studio practice through project research in both historical and contemporary contexts.

After the first year, CORE concentrates on technical studies (second year), conceptual studies (third year) and professional studies (fourth year).


Core First-Year

This requirement covers foundational courses for students in all majors. They will learn drawing, design, technology, and business. 


Core Studio (Sophomore Year)

CCAD prepares students for a collaborative creative environment by teaching technical skills outside the major of choice. 


Core Studio (Junior Year)

Students will learn how to think conceptually and work with students from many different majors. 


Core Practicum (Senior Year)

The core practicum teaches students the skills they need to succeed professionally with other artists and designers.
