About

The Master of Design Studies in Design for Human Health offered by Boston Architectural College is a 4-semester post-professional degree that merges physical, environmental, and social sciences with spatial design.

Overview

Students in the Design Studies in Design for Human Health program offered by Boston Architectural College gain specialized knowledge and skills in the growing field of designing for human health and wellness. The unique curriculum teaches students to assess and propose design improvements in private and public spaces that respond to human needs, with the goal of complementing and enhancing physical activity, cognitive performance, and psychological health and well-being.

Courses examine universal design, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neurobiology as related to health and theories of well-being, exploring the ways these concepts intersect with design theory. Students confront real world problems, brainstorming solutions, and developing prototypes of their own designs. The program culminates in a practical thesis project that investigates a specific subject of interest.
