Title:   Visualizing Information      

Course Number:      GRA 006401
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:
Our lives are full of facts we need to sift through in order to make sense of the world. Which T line gets me to South Station? What do my taxes really pay for? Frequently we need to draw connections between seemingly unrelated factors and information design makes those relationships visible. This course is devoted to ways a picture really can be worth a thousand words. The course explores both the core principles that shape good information design and putting those principles into practice. Throughout, we’ll emphasize the hallmarks of excellence in information graphics: clarity, precision, and efficiency.
