Curriculum

Low residency, Online

The low-residency/online format of the Masters in Design for Human Health enables the program to be completed in five semesters, although the program does allow for some flexibility in scheduling online lecture courses to accommodate work and personal demands.

Included in the degree is a final thesis that connects theory and practice through mentored research and design. Students may select a topic or subject matter of personal significance. A key difference between the MDS-DHH thesis and other research or studio-based theses is the integration of research methods to inform a design hypothesis. The result is an educational experience that will establish a firm foundation to launch a career in the exciting and up-and-coming profession of design for human health.

The curricular path in the Master in Design for Human Health may vary depending on the students' background and career path. Students often fall into a program based on design, clinical, or health backgrounds.
