Make A GiftDesign

The Department of Design offers the Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) degree in Experience Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, and Illustration. Designers no longer exclusively design things. They design experiences, interactions, and lifestyles—they define culture. The Bachelor of Design programs will prepare students to become “lifestyle and experience designers”—designing innovative user/consumer products, experiences and lifestyle relevant solutions. This degree program is a contemporary, future driven approach that integrates design thinking, making, processes, and methodologies with technology and programming, entrepreneurship and business strategies and management. Each concentration and subject area (Graphic Design, Experience Design, Interior Design, and Illustration) will establish a foundation for the student to transform into a unique, creatively charged, practice-ready professional concerned with how we communicate to consumers and to each other, the spaces we inhabit, the products we use and interact with, and the perception and interaction among people, objects and ideas. The programs are accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
