All courses will be scheduled with section s oc curring during the day a nd e vening hours in order to a llow students more fle xibility. Students will be expected to create an ongoing portfolio that will be re viewed by Studio and Practice fa culty, working together on a regular basis, and this process will include a face-to-face meeting with each s tudent. The se cond semester of Foundation include s a Gate way project for a ll students, Studio, two Visual Thinking course s and a libera l studies course, depending on the level of program.
