First Class Meeting

CSCI 1250 will be offered Fall 2019. Class will meet starting Wednesday September 4, 2019 at noon. Professor Meier does not give permission to take the class until after the first meeting. You can't register for this course in the Spring because it requires an override. Attendance at the first meeting is mandatory if you want to take the course. Regular class meetings will be Monday and Wednesday 12-1:50pm.


There are no fixed prerequisites for the class, but you must have some in-depth background in computer science, computer graphics, a related area like filmmaking, or in some aspect of visual art. Your background does not have to be from a formal course, but you will have to explain or demonstrate it. If you have an online portfolio or website, you can provide a link in your application. This is not necessary, but can give us a better picture of you. Hope to see you at the first class! In the mean time, you can read about the course in the missive and syllabus.
