GRID 611 - Design Seminar: Concepts and Contexts

3 credits
A seminar devoted to examining the shift in cultural, technological, material, and professional landscapes that a graduate design candidate must navigate. Through readings, presentations, and discussions, students explore how these evolved contexts are changing the nature of design practice and thinking. Special emphasis is placed on developing key concepts and ideas that inform the work that the students undertake throughout their program. The seminar works in parallel with the studio course; topics and themes covered in the seminar are germane to the studio projects.

Open to Masters of Industrial Design majors only.
