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. major in Media. Please note with care the courses that are either prerequisite to later courses in the concentration or are required as part of the concentration. Each of the courses listed should be taken to fulfill the core requirements if at all possible.
