Orientation I is the introductory course to the MFA Fashion Design & Society Program and takes place at the beginning of the first semester. The aim is to bring the students together and for them to be able to experience group learning as well as individual learning while cultivating a dialogue for future design debates and discussions. The intensive will be based on a ‘field research trip’ within New York City. The course intends to draw upon unassuming areas of research as well as traditional and extensive sources of study. Additionally, it aims to familiarize the students with a new city and challenge those students who ‘know’ the city while enabling them to find new ways of researching. An intensive research project will be established, and New York City will serve as the playground of ideas. The course is taught through one to one tutorials with a group critique for the final presentation. The Final Presentation is directed by the students own work and research methodology.

Open to: Masters degree in Fashion Design & Society majors only.
