This capstone course provides advanced students firsthand experience in the function of a professional studio environment where they create real-world projects for real-world clients. Students experience client relations, project development and management, problem solving, team management, asset management, and project delivery considerations.

Projects are accepted and completed based on your skills and those of your team members. These projects can take any form, from videos, web sites, brochures, posters, and other traditional communication formats, to experimental and non-traditional formats involving hybrid media, interactive instructional environments, and other challenging parameters. Many projects completed in the studio have won awards at the local, state, and national levels.
