Our Curriculum

The DSI curriculum is cross-disciplinary, systems-level, collaborative, and hands-on. Our coursework draws from within and outside the traditional design avenues to examine the complex systems that connect every major issue today. Students apply what they learn in projects, involving real clients and communities, to a self-designed Thesis project that caps the program.
