Colleges with an open cirriculum

<p>What are some colleges that have an open curriculum/not strict (if any) distribution requirements/the opportunity to design your own course of study/major/allow you to choose classes easily? Specifically, I want to focus my studies on art (graphic design, film, photography), as well as taking some literature and art history classes, but I don't want to go to an art school. Any suggestions?</p>

<p>Brown, without a doubt, for it's OC, strong departments in all areas you've listed, and connections to RISD.</p>

<p>For OC schools, the Teagle Group is a good place to start. Brown led a group that produced a working paper called, "The Values of the Open Curriculum: An Alternative Tradition in Liberal Education", alongside I think 9 other schools.</p>

<p>Amherst. Wesleyan.</p>

<p>Smith, if female, though if you can do the joint program with RISD, that would be preferable.</p>

<p>Brown, Bard, Reed, Wesleyan.</p>

<p>Grinnell. No distribution requirements.</p>

<p>Reed has relatively strong distribution requirements, far from an open curriculum.</p>
