Work one-on-one with an instructor who guides your development of a meaningful project geared toward a portfolio piece, design competition, freelance assignment, or other advanced goal. Students choose their own mentors, who are usually DCA or UX instructors. Together, the student and instructor arrange to meet at a museum, studio, cafe, or other site of design interest for six hours over the course of the quarter.
Students must be enrolled in the Design Communication Arts (DCA), Advanced Design Communication Arts (ADCA), or User Experience Certificate. User Experience students must complete at least three courses prior to applying for a mentorship.
