ARTH 3690 - History of Communication Design

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1700 with "C-" or better; or permission of department

Description: Students in this course engage in a comprehensive study of communication design history using the interpretive framework of contexts of change. Through an emphasis on social, economic, and environmental factors, this framework promotes discourse on the movements, people, places, and processes that have revolutionized society's relationship with visual communication throughout history. Contemporary scholarship in design is contextualized so that recent innovations in the field may be explored. Students identify historical problems in the field of study and examine variations in scholarly interpretations of works of design.
