Courses

Below are listed the main EAD courses that have been taught since 1999. Most of these are undergraduate courses because our graduate program has relatively few specialized seminars, focusing more on individual and group critique courses.  Some links to online syllabi and student projects are listed below their courses. For student projects in some courses, see the ‘Student Showcase’ area of this site under ‘Resources’ in the menu.

The curriculum was restructured in 2009-10 in order to create clearer sequences of courses from beginning to advanced. It was further reworked in 2013-14 when the Digital Arts Minor was brought fully inside the Art Department. There are several new courses in the curriculum. In addition, some familiar courses are now taught under new course numbers, and a few courses have been retired.

Courses that count towards the Digital Arts Minor are marked with an asterisk (*).
