Design StudiesA unique interdisciplinary major that sparks knowledge, innovation for the future and cultural awareness, Design Studies is great for creative students who want to be engaged in design but don’t necessarily see themselves as designers.
Major core classes typically have only 15-20 students.
Project based classes
Most courses focus on projects that provide experience with concepts and skills as opposed to lectures and tests.
