BA Design Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Design Studies is ideal for students who have discovered design after starting college, and for those who have an interest in design that may span multiple disciplines. 

Drawing upon the diverse resources of the research university, our BA program integrates the studio-based methods of the disciplines of graphic design and industrial design with explorations in the sciences and humanities. The BA in Design Studies embraces an open and collaborative approach to design process with particular attention to the human experience in design.
