DEA 1110

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Making a Difference by Design is a course about leadership, creative problem solving and social change. Design is not just about products, it is about strategy, communication, empowerment, growth and social change, and has a specific impact on health and hospitality. DEA 1110 was conceived as a companion to DEA 1100, Design Generation(s), although it is not necessary to take both classes.  The course is not a class about becoming a designer. It presumes no pre-requisites or artistic abilities.  It is an introductory level course for non-designers and designers alike which examines how design affects you personally and globally, and how you can affect design process to innovate in various fields.
