DEA 6500 - Problem-Seeking through Programming

(LAD-HE, SBA-HE) (CU-CEL)     

Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Minimum cost of materials: $100. Co-meets with DEA 3590 . Grade only for all DEA majors. Grade option for non-majors.

L. Maxwell.

Each student is required to attend DEA 3590  lectures, complete all required readings and assignments, and meet with the instructor and with other graduate students. An additional programming project is required for all graduate students.

An architectural program is used to define the design problem, guide the design process and evaluate design solutions.  Students will develop skills in preparing a program while keeping in mind the potential audiences.  This course emphasizes the role of social science research and environment - behavior interaction in facility planning and in the design process.

Outcome 1: Identify different design programming methods and understanding key issues to consider in selecting and implementing a particular programming approach through lectures, readings, and hands-on exercise (grounding in disciplines and fields).

Outcome 2: Utilize social science research, facility management skills, and design concepts to develop a program of space requirements (multidisciplinary perspectives).

Outcome 3: Develop critical success factors in developing and managing an effective programming process by participating in a major programming project for a real client (critical thinking).
