About

Integrated Designers come to Parsons School of Design to collaborate and make interdisciplinary connections that didn’t exist yesterday. Rather than choosing a disciplinary major these undergraduates choose to experiment across academic boundaries and forge new trajectories of practice. Students in this program are social innovators and creative makers who care as deeply about their aesthetics as they do their business models and research methods. Integrated Design sits within the School of Design Strategies, a hub of creative makers, entrepreneurs, and scholars who are responsive to 21st-century design challenges in a global context. While the approaches and outcomes to problem-solving are quite varied, all Integrated Design students are making an impact through collaboration and socially-engaged creative practice.
