Core 3: Capstone

Fall 2020

Taught By: Lucille Tenazas

Section: A

CRN: 8878

Credits: 3

The capstone course is a self-driven investigation into the research, prototyping, and design of an identified question, critique, or point of view. It provides an opportunity for design innovation and inquiry through the rigorous research and development of a thesis project through various pathways across platforms. This class also offers the opportunity to apply previous life experience and academic capacities to the methods and processes of communication design. It will utilize and build upon concepts learned in previous core classes as well as explore individual pathways generated by the Core 3 Professional Practice and Portfolio course. The goal of the first half of the semester is to research, develop and articulate a thesis concept and create prototypes, including designed presentations of research and process. During the second part of this class, emphasis is placed on the students’ ability to translate their cumulative knowledge into effective visual communication. Students will develop a competence in cross media design processes and understand the nature of all available communication channels in the creative industries. The senior studies are initiated by topics and not by media or technology. Open to Associates Degree in Communication Deisgn students only. Pre-requisite: PACD 1500 Professional Practices & Portfolio.
