The Level 4 Advanced Design Studios (ADS) offer students a wide range of specialized study including branding, research, interaction, publishing, exhibition/curation, experimentation, typeface design, and motion graphics.

As the roles and skills under the umbrella of graphic/communication design continue to expand, the “do everything” design practitioner is quickly becoming a myth. While there are principles and skills fundamental to any practical application of design, the program must acknowledge that for our students to best succeed after graduation, they must be encouraged to focus their studies in order to become more “T-shaped” -- possess broad knowledge and vision with facility in specific methods of application.

The ADS sequence was created to enable this goal.
