Wichita State seeking innovation design degree program
Wichita Wichita State University is working to implement a new degree program aiming to give students more freedom in their course of study.
On Wednesday, the university will seek final approval for the "Master in Innovation Design" program from the Kansas Board of Regents. The program is intended to focus on design-thinking skills, with only four required courses, giving students the ability to craft their own curriculum.
According to a proposal, the university plans to offer the new program each year to 20 students with background in arts, science and technology.
Faculty adviser Jeremy Patterson tells The Wichita Eagle that the program will "eliminate a lot of limitation."
