Liberal Arts
Undergraduate Course
Degree Students
Bridge: CRW 1
Fall 2024
Taught By: Andrew Zornoza
Section: A

CRN: 2570

Credits: 3

In this course, students will develop abilities to analyze design from multiple perspectives. Close examinations of writings about design help students to sharpen their critical thinking skills as they become familiar with key approaches within design studies. Extensive work on the mechanics of writing and the practice of presenting and defending arguments provides students with the skills needed for upper-level courses. Three frameworks for analyzing design are addressed: forms and functions, histories and genealogies, and signs and symbols. This one-semester course, which covers the same approaches to design as Critical Reading and Writing 1, is for non-native English speaking students who have completed NELP 1800 or NELP 1810.

Open to: Jazz and Parsons degree students, as required. Pre-requisite(s): English Language Placement Exam.
