About this course

The Master of Design Studies in Design for Human Health prepares the student for a rewarding career related to environmental planning, remediation, and design with the explicit intent of optimizing human health. Through collaborative studies with leaders in related fields and shared learning within a cohort of committed colleagues, students gain the essential expertise and leadership skills required to forge collaborations with health, city planning, building, and design professions to plan, remediate, and design public and private, interior and exterior, and built and natural environments. Using the city of Boston and the student's home community as living laboratories, the curriculum addresses specific cultural, geographical, and climatic conditions that directly affect and influence design and the health of human occupants.
