Design is diverse–Find your niche
A degree in design is versatile, practical, creative, exciting and challenging.
Design solves problems, creates culture and makes meaning. Designers have skills in communication, digital and hand making, strategy development and creative innovation. From remote work at home to the skyscrapers of the world’s largest cities, designers work everywhere and in every industry. A designer can be a self-employed entrepreneur, a collaborator at a design firm, or an in-house designer for a business. A designer can work in the corporate world, in sports, the arts, with non-profits, a small business and more.

Professors Prepare & Inspire
"What I loved most about the Design program were the professors and their real-life experiences with design outside just the normal classroom setting. (My professors) were all great inspirations to myself going through the program, teaching me applicable skills, many of which I still use today. At the same time, they always made sure to keep me grounded and prepared in what to expect when I graduated."
