Prerequisites/ Corequisites DS 202/302 and DS 381 are not interchangeable. In DS 202/302, the DS workshops, students may be building skills with course materials or working on distinct projects, with work to be complete within that semester. In DS 381, the Memory Practicum, students will collaborate on a pre-designated project, which might be creating a film for a community partner, helping a local institution design a commemoration of a landmark event, or to create an exhibit in a nearby museum. The Practicum will allow faculty and students to collaborate on projects which might extend beyond the scope of a single semester.
