Stage 3 course selections in  your sector of concentration should made in consultation with your Sector Adviser and approved by the Visual Studies Program Director.  These course selections are meant to create specialized depth in the chosen area of concentration to complement the breadth offered by the core curriculum. Many of the courses offered but not completed in Stage 2 may be applied to Stage 3, but several courses without VLST cross-listings are also options. 

Sector A: Courses in Philosophy, Psychology, and Cognitive Science that have a significant portion of the course related to perception

Sector B: Courses in Cinema Studies, History of Art and Visual Culture (perhaps even in Communications)

Sector C: Courses in Fine Arts and Architecture offered through the School of Design
