In designing the strand, each student must choose one strand course that focuses on Creativity in the student’s discipline or area of focus. The remaining two courses will focus more broadly on Innovation and Entrepreneurship across disciplines. Only one strand course may be taken from the student’s major department; at least one strand course must come from outside the student’s college or school.
BDP advisors assist students in finding meaningful connecting research and/or internship experiences related to Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship.
