• Visual Communication teaches you storytelling and narrative tools to help you direct and curate your own visual product.
Elective Courses (choose one of the following four):
• Copywriting. The course gives you tools for creative writing, including framing concepts, storytelling, tonality, messaging, dialogue and interplay.
• Strategic Communication. The course explores key elements of strategy, intersecting business objectives with consumers' attention and brand value.
• Graphic Design. The course trains you to apply design thinking, colors, typography, and grids to a number of design projects.
