We engage our students in the practice of design thinking, making and visualization to create beautiful, innovative, and responsible solutions (products, spaces, systems, messages, art objects, experiences, and services) that respond to human needs and enhance the quality of everyday life. Our programs foster the development of real-world problem-solving skills that can be applied to a variety of creative disciplines.
