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 Practicum (Senior Year)
