What can I expect to do in Studio 5?

Communications students integrate the skills that they have learned in their previous classes as they work with Boston area non-profit clients. They create professional-quality work. Students are exposed to the dynamics of client-employee relations, determine the needs of their non-profit clients, and produce work for based on these needs.

Will I work alone?

Students in Studio 5 work in teams. Each team member has specific roles and responsibilities for each project they take on. Each team works with two or more non-profit organizations over the course of the semester.

How are teams determined?

Faculty base the make up of the teams on a student self-assessment form that is filled out at the beginning of the semester. Each team is comprised with an aim to balance particular skills and the extent to which these meet the needs of the clients they will be assigned to.
