The Department offer an engagement with problem-based work through practicum. A practicum is a subject that provides opportunity to learn through action—an investigative and creative process driven by research, exploration, and experimentation; planning and designing come together, accompanied by critique and reflection. A practicum designation typically implies that a subject provides an opportunity to synthesize planning or design solutions within the constraints of client-based project. 

Use the database on this page to explore a range of completed DUSP practicum. This view may be filtered and sorted across multiple lines (e.g. by faculty member(s) leading the subject, geographic location, collaborators, engagement methods, etc.) Each practicum 'card' contains a brief introductory description and links to final products from the practicum.
