DSGN 495-50: Ethics and Identity in Design

Quarter Offered

Fall : Mondays, 6:00-9:00pm at The Garage ; George Aye


This class will bolster a student’s ability to ask critical questions of themselves in their role as a designer when tackling complex social issues. Through in-depth class discussions and deep self-reflection, this class will provide intellectual rigor to the many conflicts of interests and perverse incentives that persist when designers enter the social sector.

Questions like
* Why am I doing this work and why now?
* What is good design in the social sector?
* What right do I have to do this work?

This course is open to EDI and MMM
