DESN 503 Semantics + Rhetoric of the Object

3 credits 45.0 hours
500 level graduate course

This seminar explores the social implications of design as a cultural product and catalyst for social interaction. Semantic principles and design vocabulary are introduced through lectures, weekly readings, discussions and exercises. Students will approach design as a languaging process in the completion of individual projects to increase competence in translating these ideas, concepts and principles into design practices; applying replicable design methods towards proposing particular products whose meanings matter.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
