This class is a great course for anyone, you don't have to be in Media to take it. As someone interested in photography it was really good to learn a few new photoshop tricks.
The proff, Dr. Liss Platt (see her review by Chad here
) is great. She's energetic, fun and she knows her stuff. Very easy to get along with and always willing to have you into her office.
The class focused on learning Photoshop for it's various uses. You start with something simple like a digital collage and move on to photo manipulation and finally website design of a certain art movement or artist. Also, throughout the class you learn about different art movements (like the Dada movement) and are sometimes required to re-create their work.
Overall, a great elective or required course, I highly suggest it if you like to play with photoshop or photography. There is also a prior course that focuses on HTML but I did not take it.
The course consisted of several small assignments, tutorials were a must and there was a written final as well as the creation of a website using Photoshop and Image Ready.
