In spring of 2017, RISD launched an interdisciplinary, 15-credit undergraduate concentration in Computation, Technology, and Culture (CTC). Students earn credits toward the concentration by taking a mix of required courses and identified electives. Through the CTC concentration students gain an understanding of the ideas and techniques of writing in programming languages, while engaging with critical analysis, history, and theory concerning software systems, computational platforms, and associated technologies shaping society. Students hone their ability to write source code, author software, and program machines for making works of art and design.
Please note that applications for the Fall 2017 section of Introduction to Computation are now closed.
Accepted and waitlisted students were notified via e-mail on May 11 and 12.
If you are interested in becoming a concentrator, please contact the CTC Coordinator Clement Valla by e-mail: cvalla *at* risd *dot* edu
