Design Area of Visual Arts Department, Mason Gross School of the Arts of Rutgers University in New Jersey is seeking for part-time design teachers.
Design studies at Mason Gross School of the Arts are grounded in graphic design and interaction design, reflecting the rapidly evolving nature of visual communication and technology. Students gain expertise in developing innovative ways of communicating ideas in a wide range of concrete and dynamic media. They acquire skills in typography, publication design, coding, and data visualization, while shaping content and form in both speculative and real-world situations.
The program encourages experimentation and a critical engagement with contemporary culture, equipping students for a lifetime of practice as digital and/or print designers. The curriculum prepares graduates to contribute to shaping the future direction of design.
Design studio courses emphasize context and audience in formats including posters, books, identities, mobile applications and web sites. In upper-level courses, students undertake real-world assignments that hone their sense of design in the everyday via an internship or practicum. Technically, students develop a grasp of the limitations and possibilities of a wide range of software and hardware. Seminar courses promote an understanding of design history and key issues and debates in contemporary practice.
