Welcome to one of the most unique, interdisciplinary programs in the country. In Design Cultures & Creativity (DCC), we bring together students from 46 different majors on campus from a wide range of backgrounds—not only with regards to racial, ethnic, sexual, religious, educational, mobility, and economic experiences, but also in terms of skills, talents, and interests. DCC fosters an open, collaborative, and social environment that encourages students to explore relationships between design, society, and creative practices.
We are passionate about emerging technologies and their impact on the world, and even more importantly, how our designs can make our worlds a better place for humans and all other living things to thrive. DCC students are innovative thinkers and makers who engage in research and collaborative projects on topics that engage issues pertaining to identity, connectivity, social justice, art, design, and all things creative in an era when digital media links us on a scale unprecedented in human history.
