About

The design and research-based MS plan of study is often undertaken in preparation for professional practice or preparation for the doctoral degree. The project is conducted in emphasis areas as described below. Within each of these emphases, specific course work is selected based on subject matter, the type of design project and its research application.

Research is conducted in one of two emphasis areas — design with digital media or environment and behavior studies. Within each emphasis area, specific course work is selected based on subject matter and the type of research method selected — quantitative, qualitative or a combination of both methods. The culmination of the degree is the written research thesis and a final oral examination by an approved faculty committee.
