Media Creation Foundations 3 (Thoughts and Lectures)

Here students get an introduction to the Media Creation Theory classes, designed to instill in students the techniques and knowledge necessary to make high-level media creations and help them engaged in practical, specialized research and creation in our Project and Special Research classes. As the contents of each class are introduced, students will be able to ask questions to dispel any uncertainties they may have about them. 

   We will also introduce the specialization and activities of our school’s full-time faculty – the purpose of this course is not only to help students decide which Theory class to take, but also to help them decide which project to participate in and which instructors they would like to be their graduate research examiners.

   The Media Creation Theory classes make up a 2 X 3 grid – the rows: creation and design; the columns: information and media, body and environment, and science and society.
