Title:   Visualizing Information      

Course Number:      GRAC 0064A
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. By exploring the core principles of information design and putting them into practice, this course will explore ways a picture really can be worth a thousand words. Throughout, we’ll emphasize the hallmarks of excellence in information graphics: clarity, precision, and efficiency. Level: all levels (beginner to advanced).
 
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
