Richard B. Doubleday has taught at the College of Fine Arts, Boston University for over 12 years. In the BFA Graphic Design program his class, The Senior Degree Project, involves extensive, student directed research investigations in graphic communications. One of the goals of this interdisciplinary course is to have each student address, through self-authored graphic design projects, social, environmental, political, linguistic, philosophical, and cultural issues across the academic spectrum. An electronic portfolio was launched in 2011 to aggregate the learning and creative trajectory and serve as an extensive record and accomplishments.
In the MFA Graphic Design program his class, Graduate Graphic Design 2, is devoted primarily to the Master's thesis, which is expected to make an original contribution to the graphic design profession. The completed thesis is presented at the annual spring exhibition held in the Faye G., Jo, and James Stone Gallery.
