FN 123  Interdisciplinary Studio I  6 Credits  

FN123-124 is taught by Studio faculty who work collaboratively across disciplines representing the broad domains of Art, Design, Film and Interior Architecture. Students work within a studio cohort, and each project will draw on the instructors’ disciplinary expertise in relationship to conceptual themes. Students will be immersed in a dynamic experience, whereby existing assumptions about discipline, media, and methodology will be investigated, guiding the development of their studio practice through a diverse range of options and ideas. Learning outcomes include applied skills (practical and technical), cognitive skills (problem solving and critical analysis), communication skills, digital literacy, agency and collaboration.
