Class Description: 
This course will introduce students to a set of primary methodological approaches for critically evaluating and interpreting designed artifacts and environments, issues, and topic areas in the art and design disciplines. Because so much of a designer’s educational and professional experiences are focused on the artifact and its creation, very little time is devoted to the examination of the historical, social, and cultural contexts and precedents that the artifact inhabits, affects, and is influenced by. Upon completion of this course, students will have developed critical skills, and a set of strategies used in thinking, discussing, and writing about design. Prerequisites: DSI 5320 Leadership for Design Strategy + Innovation, DSI 5340 Business Foundations, DSI 5510 Design Thinking, and DSI 5530 Ideation
