What you'll learn in this typography class:

This course will cover creating and choosing fonts, sizes, and colors; incorporating text and illustrations; avoiding common mistakes in text usage and common rules. 

The course will look at the history of typography and students will learn about the anatomy behind the fonts. Emphasis will be placed on using the correct font for the correct application, readability and scalability. 

The course will teach students about using licensed fonts in their projects, how to create their own fonts and how to market that font to other graphic designers. 

Recommended Prerequisites: 
Adobe Illustrator (CGI0002)

Note: Classroom location listings are also posted outside the CAPS office and the lobby of the 17 Lexington Avenue building.

Refund Policy
Students MUST submit a detailed written request to withdraw from a course, which CourseHorse will then forward on to the school. The request must state the reason of cancellation.

Refunds or credits are available: Full refund or credit if request to withdraw is made 3 business days before the first class session. 50% refund or credit if request to withdraw is made before the second class session. After the second class session no refunds or credits will be granted.

No refunds or credits will be issued for classes that meet four sessions or fewer. Classes include seminars, intensives and workshops.

All refunds will have a $25 processing fee deducted from the course refund as well as a $20 registration fee ($45 total).

When Baruch College cancels a course, refunds are made automatically. If for any reason the department cancels a session, then a make-up session will be offered.

COURSE WITHDRAWALS 

Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the CAPS Office in writing. Failure to complete a course, ceasing to attend class, notifying the instructor of your desire to withdraw, or general dissatisfaction with a course does not constitute a withdrawal and does not entitle you to a refund. Instructors are not permitted OR able to process withdrawals, transfers or refunds.

MAKE-UP POLICY

If a student misses a session, the department unfortunately does not authorize the student to make up that missed session in another section. If the instructor informs the student to visit another section of his class, then that is between the student and the instructor.

Don't take this class if you're looking to learn or have comprehensive critique. Better off just googling how to do what you want to do.
