Design Thinking Minor

This minor is open to students in the Schools of Business and Technology and Liberal Arts only.

Design today is a multidisciplinary collaborative field where business leaders, managers, and marketing specialists work closely with teams of designers, writers, and developers to accomplish goals. These goals range from small projects to complete business strategies.

The Design Thinking minor was created for nondesigners who are intending to work in the design industry or with designers, either as business developers, retail managers, account managers, or strategic planners.

You will learn how design research (history, trends, best practices, and existing practice review) can be incorporated into an analysis and design strategy. You will learn how to develop a design strategy by creating a communication and management approach that integrates the talents of designers in different fields. 

The following requirements below are intended for students beginning fall 2024.

To declare your minor, please speak to your academic advisor for assistance.
