In Fall 2013, the Bachelor of Design Studies implemented a revised curriculum. The portfolio requirements for the revised BDS curriculum are different from the previous BDS curriculum. See the information below for the portfolio requirements for each curriculum. Students who have questions or who are unsure of the requirements they are to meet should contact Don Hunsicker, Head, School of Design Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Unless otherwise instructed, students enrolled in the Bachelor of Design Studies curriculum prior to fall 2013 - commonly called the "old BDS curriculum" - are required to submit a portfolio that meets the BDS PR450 requirements.
Unless otherwise instructed, students enrolled in the Bachelor of Design Studies in fall 2013 or later - commonly called the "new BDS curriculum" are required to submit 1) a portfolio that meets the Foundation Portfolio PRV0001 requirements (typically at the end of the student's second semester) and 2) a portfolio that meets the requirements of the BDS PRV0002 Segment II requirements.
