What is Collaborative Design?

“Collaborative” means you’ll learn how to creatively solve problems and engage in project activities, management and coordination in both public and private organizations. We’ll help you develop techniques for generative and communicating good ideas, both independently and as part of a team.

“Design” means you’ll graduate with a deep understanding of the process of design. A blend of studio classes, art history, general ed, and a required minor in one of our design disciplines adds up to well-rounded students who can understand, advocate and facilitate good design wherever they go.
