Credits: 3

This is a hands-on design studio carried out in partnership with an external organization, and will focus on daily-life services that affect the wellbeing and quality of life of people living in urban communities. Working through collaborative design frameworks and methods, students in this course will research, conceptualize, and develop proposals in areas that may include youth-related services, food services, education services, and recidivism prevention and reintegration services. Students will explore new service opportunities through specific service design methods and tools, such as direct field research and co-design practices. They will develop and utilize knowledge of the contexts and socio-political dynamics that space the focus of our design work in the course. This course is an excellent opportunity for students to build their portfolios and gain experience in the emerging field of Service Design.
