AAD 50000 Portfolio and Career Foundations

This advanced professional course provides students with a structured environment to refine their personal design styles and technical skills as it pertains to the field. Students will refine self- selected pieces, mentor other students, and develop an interactive platform in which to display the best of their work. Interviewing, résumé building, and job hunting are closely tied to the distribution of a portfolio and thus are a pivotal part of the course content. Students will conclude the course with a professional résumé, digital portfolio, and set of skills that will assist them in securing both a valuable internship and future career. Lab fee may be required. This class may require the use of a virtual reality headset identified by the instructor.
