This course examines the products of the decorative arts and applied design during the past 150 years. Material includes examples of furniture, household objects, industrial design, fashion, and graphic design. The emphasis is not upon a particular design profession or medium, but rather upon how design functions in relation to political, economic, and social history.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
