Certificate in Public Interest Design

 

The College of Design is in the process of developing both an undergraduate interdisciplinary minor and a graduate certificate program in public interest design. When approved, they will be among the first in the nation . These programs will give students the opportunity to explore "great design for the greater good" through their work.
