Seminars that Fulfill WAY-CE

Creative Expression (CE)

You’ll find a wide variety of Creative Expression courses available – from product design and architecture, to sculpture and the graphic novel, dance and musical and dramatic performance.  You might take a Creative Expression course from one of the arts departments or the program in creative writing, or undertake design work through engineering.  Creative Expression courses are devoted to artistic practice, whereas you’ll find arts department courses devoted primarily to critical analysis and exegesis in Aesthetic and Interpretive Inquiry.

You’ll need to take one 2-unit minimum course in Creative Expression (CE).  You may also opt to take the same 1-unit CE certified course for two quarters (courses do not need to be taken in consecutive quarters) or you may take two different 1-unit CE certified courses in the same department such as Dance, Music, or TAPS.  A CE course must be taken for a letter grade except when it is offered “Satisfactory/No Credit” only (CE courses offered “Letter or Credit/No Credit” must be taken for a letter grade).  Thinking Matters,many Introductory Seminars, and some of your major requirements may also count towards your Ways coursework.
