Design Thinking Certificate

Design Thinking is now offering a certificate! 

The online Design Thinking Certificate requires students to complete 15-credit hours of graduate level coursework that empowers them to strategize, plan, and solve complex problems across a multitude of venues. The curriculum is structured to facilitate mastery in Design Thinking methods, management, teaming, and environment and behavior.

Starting this fall, students can enroll in the one-year program that consists of 15 credit hours. These classes include:

  • DSN 600 Advanced Design Studio I (3 credits)
  • DSN 640 Design Thinking (3 credits)
  • DSN 645 Collaboration Studio (3 credits)
  • DSN 670 Environment Behavior (3 credits)
  • DSN 740 Design Management (3 credits)

The Certificate is structured so that existing courses from the MFA in Design Thinking program satisfy the requirements for the Certificate. This means you can easily transfer from the Certificate to the MFA if you want to continue your studies.
