The minor’s focus is on design as a way of thinking, one based on an iterative cycle of field observation, problem finding, and evaluating alternative solutions and tradeoffs by prototyping and testing. The primary objective of the minor is to enable students from any division and major to diversify their studies and incorporate design thinking skills into their academic experience.
To receive a minor in Design, a student must complete at least 28 units of which 20 must be upper division. All courses must be taken for a letter grade with at least a “C-“ earned in each one, with the exception of Design 119 and 195, which are taken Pass/Not Pass.
