The Design and Human Environment (DHE) graduate curriculum is designed to meet the academic and professional needs of a wide range of students. Current graduate students say they particularly like the individual and personalized attention from the faculty, both during the application process and as students in the department. They also cite the flexible nature of the program and the diversity of course offerings as important considerations. Students work closely with their advisers to actively create a program that will address their needs and interests.
