Design Matters

How do we form an opinion about what we see around us? How do we make decisions that are relevant in the design world? In this course, students discuss, analyze, and discover the principles of design through a comprehensive exploration of successful projects envisioned by artists, architects, theorists, and authors. This course examines problem solving through the principles of design for a variety of project types, and will include lectures, readings, and individual assignments. Class discussions will explore new aesthetic trends and examine how ideas have evolved to address new issues.


“[The instructor] did an amazing job...She split the weekly Zoom meeting to two: group meeting and individual meeting, and she carefully and creatively designed activities and assignments for a successful remote learning.” -Design Matters online course student, Summer 2020
