We provide an overview of the Master of Science in Visualization Sciences program offered at Texas A&M University. Central to this program is the intermixing of concepts, students, and faculty from art, computer science, architecture, and engineering. We explain the structure of the curriculum, and then focus on a detailed analysis of foundation courses that have been designed to make it possible for students from such diverse backgrounds to share the same advanced coursework. Illustrations are drawn from a number of examples of student project work in these foundation courses. We present practical guidelines for those seeking to implement similar courses in their programs.
