Media Design

Spring 2021

Taught By: Brian McCormick

Section: A

CRN: 5249

Credits: 3

Organized around the three themes of Design & Prototyping, Audio & Video Production, and Management & Communication, this course looks at the character of different media forms, the relationship between forms, and guidelines for choosing which combination is best for a given communications project and impactful storytelling. Concentrating on critical design thinking, combining effective communication with engaging user experiences and innovative use of media, students tackle a variety of design problems. Through a series of projects, students apply basic design principles and prototyping skills, work with digital audio and images, work together in groups and develop persuasive presentations. Student designers focus on the primary concepts of digital media making, choosing media formats and channels strategically, and learning to exchange feedback in structured critiques. The goal of this course is to help students build a foundation of design thinking, skills, and processes that can be applied throughout the program as well as their careers.

This course is required for all MA in Media Studies and MS in Media Management students to be taken in the first year of study. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.

Taught By: P. Crow-Kain

Section: A

CRN: 3838

Credits: 3

This course is required for all students to be taken in the first year of study. The course looks at the character of different media forms, the relationship between forms, and guidelines for choosing which combination is best for a given communications project. Concentrating on design thinking, it offers an experiential tour of the creative toolset and critical precepts of media practice and is the foundation course for additional Media Practice and project-based courses. Through a series of short projects, students work with sound, the digital still image and its sequencing, lighting and the moving image and digital post-production and distribution techniques. Using simple digital tools, student designers focus on the important primary concepts of digital media making. Additional major software used professionally and in subsequent Media Practice and project-based courses are introduced, though not explored in depth. By semester's end, each student will have completed a series of individual projects combining media formats on a collaborative project, undertaken in the groups' choice of medium, to satisfy an assigned design problem. The course's broad goal is to reconnect media designers to their personal sources of creativity and to help orient them to the program's Media Practice course curriculum.

Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
