To bring substance and deeper understandings to the studios you will have the opportunity to take four electives from the RISD and Brown catalogs, and to work closely with partner organizations. The electives are intended to build skills and your body of knowledge in an area that you are passionate about. The partner organizations bring real world issues, mentoring, and access to people and places. Taken together these play a strong role in defining your trajectory through the program. The listings below are examples of courses that might be part of your trajectory.
