Many different people can find the value in taking summer courses. These courses can help individuals gain basic knowledge in a subject or expand their understanding of certain concepts. Summer courses typically impart the same amount of core knowledge that courses offered during the regular school year provide, but they do it in less time.

What is a summer course in design studies? It is a program that was created to give individuals background knowledge required to complete a design degree or certification program. In these courses, participants learn the basics of design that are applicable to disciplines ranging from graphic design to fashion. Each comes with its own set of criteria and offerings, and upon completion students are prepared with a proper foundation to dig deeper into the design specialty of their choice.

This summer course provides a foundation that allows students to focus on sharpening their skills when they get into more advanced coursework, rather than having to learn the concepts as they go. This can help them to advance more quickly in their studies.

There are a few different factors that must be considered when establishing the price for this program. The location of the school, average cost of attendance and whether students study in person or online are all different factors that contribute to the price. As such, it can vary from person to person.

The summer course in design prepares students to pursue degrees and certifications in a variety of fields. Each concentration provides a path into a particular career. For example, a graphic design program can prepare individuals for careers in the IT field or business and marketing, while a fashion design program could help students in the arts and fashion. The foundational skills developed through this education have no limits as far as their possible applications.

A summer course in design can be very beneficial to your pursuit of a career in design, no matter what avenue you choose. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

We live in uncertain times. The favorable climate that humanity has known is rapidly changing, with far-reaching implications for human behavior and health. It’s increasingly critical to build preparedness for direct – and indirect – climate impacts and to welcome uncertainty into the design process. How do we explore and imagine possible pathways to increase our resilience and capacity to adapt? This workshop will explore these questions and help build an understanding of the trajectories, impacts, and influences of climate change. -
