New for Fall 2014

Our new Integrated Design diploma program will give you the fundamental design skills and critical thinking needed to become a successful designer in the 21st century.

This one-of-a-kind, accelerated diploma program incorporates a hands-on approach to material culture, sustainability and fine craftsmanship.

In three semesters you’ll explore and experiment, collaborate, communicate and discover your design talent, and be prepared to apply your knowledge to whatever design specialty you choose to pursue.
