The Certificate would entail 12 total credit hours. The curriculum would consist of a required course: Book Arts (3 credit hours) in which students would design and print by hand an edition of quarto-size chapbooks.

The remaining 9 credit hours would be fulfilled by taking three additional courses, one each, in Design, Creative Writing/Historical Studies and Visual Art, allowing the Graduate students flexibility in designing their own Certificate curriculum. (see check sheet). We expect the academic and studio class menu to be added on to as the Certificate evolves.
