Welcome to the Department of Human Centered Design (HCD) and our undergraduate majors in Design + Environmental Analysis, Fashion Design & Management and Fiber Science!

Our HCD faculty are unique and have diverse expertise. We are artists, anthropologists, architects, engineers, psychologists, scientists and experts in apparel, business and technology, and our transdisciplinary work has a strong focus on improving human lives.

Our approach, emphasizing scientific inquiry, critical thinking and design thinking, is what sets Human Centered Design apart from other design programs.

More information will be available for new students by June 9.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
