In this final studio course, students will explore independent learning and entrepreneurial thinking through self-directed projects. Alongside continued work for real clients in the department's client studio, students will also be required to engage in self-directed learning by selecting a personal area of specialization and completing a core independent project that requires new learning. Additionally, students will explore entrepreneurial thinking by either completing an independent paid project for their own freelance client or by planning and pitching a unique business idea that they could realistically pursue after graduation. Students will be encouraged to use their work in this course to develop their personal identities as designers, building strength and confidence that will help them build careers after graduation.
