Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

Program Requirements


Recommended Course Sequence

The courses listed below are a suggested sequence; as long as prerequisites are met, courses may be taken in a different order.

Students who have not met the prerequisites for the required courses will need the Design Program Chair’s permission to enroll.

Technical Elective - 4-5 Credits


Select a course with ART, CSD, or DSGN as the prefix. The following courses are recommended.

General Education Requirements - 15 Credits


Diversity and Social Justice Requirement


Within the degree requirements, students must complete a 3-5 credit course that meets the college’s Diversity and Social Justice (DSJ) requirement. DSJ courses are designated in the college schedule and are designed to meet other general education or technical requirements simultaneous to meeting the DSJ requirement (e.g., ENGL& 101 with the DSJ attribute meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).

Note: Not all sections of a course meet the DSJ requirement. Students should review the class information to ensure the class section includes “course attributes: meets diversity requirement.”

Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.

Students who have taken a DSJ class in a previous certificate or degree, do not have to take another DSJ class.

Total Program Credits: 57-58
