Study Abroad in Design
The Design faculty strongly encourages students to study abroad. Through this experience students can gain valuable knowledge about design in other cultures and can develop a much richer understanding of design. Interaction with design students and faculty world-wide provides a distinctive approach and diverse perspective to design problems and their creative solutions. Different geographical and cultural regions offer unique environmental and cultural elements that can greatly enrich the design process, for students and future design professionals.
The design faculty at UC Davis, through their personal travels and collaboration with faculty and professionals all over the world, illustrate the value of international experience, incorporating these international experiences and research into their own design practices and their teaching.
