Explore the power of design to change people’s lives.
Behind every great experience is a designer who envisioned every moment.
Learn what human-centered design really means, and discover how to create visual design work that responds to human interaction. You'll design end-to-end user experiences that address the needs, emotions, and behaviors of real people. Our reimagined general education curriculum will deeply engage you in 21st-century issues facing humankind, helping you to become a socially conscious designer.
Develop the visual and conceptual skills that serve as a foundation for all design work as you grow into your career as a mobile app designer, information architect, web designer, user experience (UX) researcher, commercial artist, and more.
And build on those skills during your internships in places like Marquis Design, Puma, American Repertory Theater, Hasbro, and more. With faculty guidance and support you'll have opportunities to gain real-world, on-the-job training in one of top-rated cities for designers and make connections that will help launch your career.
At Lesley University's College of Art and Design, you'll immerse in a thriving community of experienced design faculty who will teach you the tools and techniques for prototyping interactive design. Work directly with clients, conduct user testing, and prototype and design projects using industry-standard tools and technologies. Your classwork will push you to develop your world view and your empathy as you work to solve complex challenges at individual and global scales.
By the end of the program, you'll showcase your knowledge of visual thinking and dynamic interactions in a portfolio that will engage, delight, and create a meaningful impact on your audience.
