Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studios extend a student's cross-school experience from Core Studio up into their upper division years. 3 units of Interdisciplinary Studio are required of all majors and must be completed in the junior or senior year. This advanced level studio is thematic in nature. Technical demonstrations are paired with thoughtful readings, seminar discussions and ambitious projects. Collaboration, experimentation and presentation skills are developed in concert with critical thinking.

In this interdisciplinary course, students will envision the future of documentary art and design by exploring creative forms of visualization. With mentorship from instructors, outside experts and journalists, students will research topics that affect people in the Bay Area and create projects through direct engagement with the community. Projects may involve animation, video, drawing, comics, motion graphics, photography, interactive media or any combination thereof. The semester will culminate in a final event and exhibition.
