The Real World Classroom is a model design program that redefines the classroom. Students learn through doing, with actual clients, on location, and on campus including online international collaboration. Students engage in internships, and freelance professional work. The environment is relevant and real, which accelerates the learning process beyond mastering design course content; students develop a sense of competence and confidence that serve them well in the professional sphere. The environment fosters the development of life skills that aid in their fulfillment and success.
In their second semester, students have the opportunity to create a tri-fold brochure for their first Real World client.
In the third semester, students get another opportunity to work with a Real World client in Commercial Photography. Here is some work from 2018 when the client was Tree Juice Maple Syrup.
