Notes

Students may enroll in ADS 320 (KU Design Symposium) without prior admission to the Minor in Design. Admission to the minor is prerequisite to enrollment in all other ADS courses.

Admission to the Minor in Design does not guarantee enrollment in courses required for the minor. Space in required courses is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Department of Design works carefully to build in capacity for our major and minor students to take their required courses, though we're unable to guarantee accommodation for all possible students in every semester.

Students whose primary interest is Photography should consider our Photography Minor.
