Course Description:
Off-campus placement in a professional environment such as a graphic design studio, art gallery, or art organization, to gain insight into a particular art or design career and work experience in the field. Many different internships are possible. Variable credit from 3 to 6 hours (i.e., a minimum of 6 to 12 hours per week). Departmental approval required. Intended for seniors. Variable credit: 3-6 hours.

Educational Philosophy:
As a Graphic Design teacher, my principal objective is to expand student's design competency. In accomplishing this goal, I rely on a variety of skills including:

• Building relationships of trust with students;
• Possessing a high degree of competency    and knowledge in course material;
• Understanding the course material knowledge level of my students; and
• I believe that a teacher must encourage and allow students to take responsibility for their own learning accomplishments

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

Grading Scales (Assignments/Projects)
There will be assignments, projects and written tests. Each student will be evaluated in the following manner:
Lab Projects and Assignment

Fulfills the Assignment        20%
Design                     20%
Creativity                20%
Growth and Development        20%
Class Participation            20%
(Discussion, attendance, work habit, etc)

Late Submission of Course Materials:
There are no excused absences. The accumulation of more than four absences will result in the student's failure for the class. Class critiques are part of the completion of each assigned project. Students who fail to attend a critique will lose one letter grade on the project. With a Doctor's note you may submit your project, make up your in class assignment or take the written test. But you will receive one grade lower as a final grade for submitting it late as per the class policy.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive.  Learners must recognize though that technology may also cause problems.  Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash.  Learners must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to zip disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89
Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community.  Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers, or other course assignments.  Learners who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87
Plagiarism – the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "W".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
