IDESN 3371 Community Design Internship

Community Design Internship can be taken by students who have earned 75 or more credits to fulfill their design internship requirement. This course is cross-listed with Community Design Studio, a professional work-experience course in which students collaborate with non-profit organizations to produce vital, real-world projects. The course helps students develop essential skills - communicating ideas, understanding client relationships (meetings, presentations, budgets and schedules), collaborating with peers, and coordinating a project with its complex attributes from a design brief through to actual production. The mission of the course is to use design to strengthen the communities around us and, in the process, to strengthen ourselves as designers. Students taking this course to fulfill their internship are expected to work in a leadership capacity and produce a substantive amount of work.
