The Media School

Choosing Managing/Thinking/Making Courses Based on Degree Sequence
The Managing/Thinking/Making classes serve two roles in The Media School curriculum.
  1. As a complement to MSCH-C 101 Media, they provide a more focused introduction to the intellectual approaches, creative practices, and analytical methods employed by particular concentrations and specializations within The Media School.
  2. Managing/Thinking/Making courses also function as pre-requisite courses preparing students for upper-level work associated with the Concentrations and Specializations.

The table below lists recommended Managing/Thinking/Making courses for the various concentrations associated with the B.S. in Game Design, the B.A.J., and the B.A. in Media. Only the B.S. in Game Design and the Media Science Concentration in the B.A. in Media make recommendations in more than one of these categories, leaving students some flexibility to choose courses in the other categories based on their interests and curiosity.
