Design for Change
This culminating pathway course takes the design expertise students have developed thus far and uses it to affect positive change in the world on an issue students care most about. This course provides a deep dive into effective communication strategies to influence social issues, offers opportunities for students to learn from successful nonprofit leaders working in their community, and apply those strategies through the production of issue brand identities, buttons, posters, t-shirt. As the final project of the pathway, students can choose to design a website, mobile application, short film, or a photo essay with the aim of creating change on their issue using design. In the future, students may have the opportunity to sit for an Adobe Certified Associate exam, which offers certification in one or more of the Adobe Suite Applications.
