All first-year students at Moore must take a course known as Visual Thinking.
Moore began the program with first-year students in the fall of the 2015-2016 school year. Classes are held on Fridays from 8:30 am to 3:20 pm. The course has three components: the studio experience; seminar, or workshops; and developing community among the students. Students from all majors work alongside one another, creating different approaches to the same theme in the studio part of the course.
