4  DES 520 Graduate Seminar/Elective* 

*The School of Design will offer at least two sections of this course in the fall semester. The most up-to-date info on all CADA Graduate Electives is available via the CADA Graduate Electives link to the right. You may also take a 400-level or above undergraduate Design Elective, or a 520 course offered by the School of Art+Art History/School of Architecture if you prefer. 

At least for this first semester, it is my recommendation that you choose a 520 course offered by the School of Design but if you find something else that is preferable, you may discuss with the Director of the Preliminary Year Program, Brian Anderson.
