'''Course Description:'''
(:cell style='padding:5px;':)
'''CITA 295:''' A seminar course to develop through readings, discussion, and writing exercises the integration of themes developed across computing in the arts. Students will benefit from participating with junior and senior majors in a group seminar in preparation for their own enrollment in CITA 495. Open to CITA majors only.

''Prerequisites:'' CSCI/CITA 210, CSCI 221, 9 hours in an art concentration.

'''CITA 495:''' A capstone course to provide a synthesizing experience for CITA majors across all concentrations. Students will read and analyze the latest research in the expanding field of computing in the arts, and will develop individual research projects integrating their skills and knowledge for both written and oral presentation. Open only to CITA majors with senior standing.

''Prerequisite:'' CITA 295.

'''Course Outcomes:'''
(:cell style='padding:5px;':)
The course is an integrative capstone course that synthesizes and contrasts the following core objectives of the CITA major:
# model processes, particularly those in arts applications;
# investigate, visualize, speculate, and invent using computing and computational thinking;
# synthesize innovative software applications and media combining music, images, sounds, lighting and stage design, and other digital artifacts; and
# explore the potential of computational thinking and its influence on society.

Specific outcomes:

* Develop annotated bibliography related to particular art concentration and computing.
* Identify and pursue a specific artistic concept that involves computer software/hardware.
* Develop software that controls/generates/contributes (in a substantial way) to the realization of the artistic concept.
* Present artistic concept and its realization to an audience of peers.\\

(:cellnr valign=top align=right style='padding:5px;':)
'''Learning Outcomes:'''
(:cell style='padding:5px;':)
* Learn how to integrate/synthesize computing with a particular art discipline.
* Explore common, creative computational themes between concentrations in the arts.
* Locate relevant materials which speak to the synthetic nature of computing in the arts.
* Prepare and deliver papers and articles that serve to integrate computing and the arts concentration areas to the class.
* Expose students in one concentration to the integrative nature of CITA in the complement of concentrations.
* Engage students in summarizing perspectives on the integration of computing and the arts.
* Learn and apply oral presentation skills.
* Apply research skills.
* Apply reading and listening skills.
* Apply writing skills.
