Graphic Design in Europe

Graphic Design in Europe is a three-week study tour of multiple European countries. While this seminar course is primarily a study of graphic design, it is also a study of visual culture, as observed in the art, architecture and design of each city and site. Through a range of design studio visits and museums, students will be exposed to the variations in philosophy and methods of European design firms. In addition to the office visits, students will study art and design in museums and historical site and conduct site-specific design research as well as observation and documentation of visual culture in a range of public spaces.

Students receive 3 undergraduate or graduate credits; BFA students can use this to waive the internship requirement.
