CLASSROOM STRUCTURE & INSTRUCTION:
Academic Lecture Classes:
Lecture classes meet every day for a total of 45 contact hours. Classes combine in-class lectures, discussion, and on-site visits and instruction. Most academic courses are reading and writing intensive and will require a minimum of 6-9 hours of work outside of regular class-time.
These hands on courses meet every day for a total of 90 contact hours. Studio courses combine practical lessons, in-class demonstrations, and slide presentations. When possible students go on-site to work or visit exhibits or museums of relevance to the subject being studied. All courses require outside work and in-class critiques, both group and individual. Advanced studio courses may require written assignments and many require students to keep a sketchbook.
Grading and Evaluation:
Students are graded using the American University model of evaluation.
Most courses integrate on-site visits to museums and exhibitions and at times require day trips. These excursions are considered an integral part of the course curriculum and attendance is mandatory. The fees for these excursions are not included in tuition and students will be invoiced separately after the end of the add-drop period for these excursions along with general lab fees.
