School of Design

Discover the Design Industry with Dunwoody College’s School of Design

Design is at the core of human experience. It shapes the way we perceive, understand, and interact with the world around us. The School of Design brings together three key disciplines: architecture, graphic design, and interior design to train the next generation of design leaders.

At Dunwoody we educate designers who bring together strong technical skills with creativity, leadership skills, and a focus on the public interest. We combine design thinking with real-world applications and hands-on learning. We are proud of our ongoing relationships with industry partners that enriches our student experience and strengthens our professions.

Good design improves the way people experience the world.

The world needs architects, interior designers, and graphic designers who can combine strong technical skills with creativity, leadership skills, and a focus on the public interest.

At Dunwoody, you begin learning what it takes to meet the needs of the world — and industry — your first semester on campus.

Your class sizes will be small — both for your major and your general ed and electives. You’ll use industry-standard software and equipment and have access to a fabrication lab and a print shop.

You will work on projects with real clients and receive feedback from working professionals. As you move through your degree program, you will build a strong portfolio that shows both the technical expertise you have gained and your ability to creatively problem solve. You’ll also gain real-world experience through field trips, industry speakers, and internship opportunities.
