Multi-disciplinary Design (

Design at the University of Utah is a unified front of academics, professionals and students redefining the design language as it evolves beneath and beyond us. Students in the program move through a series of experiences exposing them to high craft, grounded research, ethics, leadership/collaboration skills and new technologies in the digital, physical and platform realms.

The Digital Matters Lab is a joint venture with the Architecture+Planning, Fine Arts, Humanities, and the Marriott Library. Its purpose is three-fold. First, to serve as the locus for computationally enhanced humanities research and pedagogy, with a strength in cultural criticism and theory. Second, to provide a space for undergraduate, graduate, and faculty to learn both method and methodologies of humanities-centered information technology. And third, to link the humanities with other disciplines and the broader community. The lab will support scholars working in textual, visual, and aural domains.
