Meth­ods of Inquiry is a process-based stu­dio course in which stu­dents learn and prac­tice a series of cre­ative inquiry meth­ods. Stu­dents learn dif­fer­ent ways of approach­ing cre­ative inquiry, draw­ing on and inte­grat­ing cre­ative meth­ods from dis­ci­plines across the art and design spec­trum. Course work includes learn­ing how to effec­tively present project pro­pos­als, thought­fully assess a project’s strengths and weak­nesses, con­sider viable alter­na­tives, and make informed deci­sions regard­ing solutions/​outcomes/​proposals. By the end of the semes­ter, stu­dents will be able to employ mul­ti­ple meth­ods for find­ing and address­ing mean­ing­ful cre­ative prob­lems and oppor­tu­ni­ties. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in both the fall and win­ter terms of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
