Experiential Education and Industry Partnerships

Our students are talented critical thinkers who ask meaningful questions and push creative boundaries to bring new and engaging solutions to your organization.

Whether through digital storytelling, UX/UI (user experiences/interfaces), visual design, or social media strategies, our students consult with an interdisciplinary approach by bringing together design thinking, technology and business — making great additions to any firm.
