Human Centered Design (HCD)
The Department of Human Centered Design (formerly DEA and FSAD) enriches people and their environments through transdisciplinary activity. We integrate analog and digital knowledge, tools, methods, and creative processes from design, humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences to address real-world challenges. Faculty and students conceptualize, prototype, and evaluate products and processes that enhance human potential, well-being, and community. Our graduates possess the tools, skills, and strategies to become industry leaders, visionary academics, and pioneering practitioners.
