The Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design

Welcome to The Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design. We're exceptionally proud of our unique and highly respected programs. As a graduate, you'll be ready to meet your personal and professional goals in the field of design in disciplines such as Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing, Graphic Design in Marketing, Interior Design and Product Design. If you have not decided on a design discipline, the one year Foundations in Design program can help you explore design possibilities while developing fundamental skills. In addition, design-related courses are being developed as general education or bridging courses that will be accessible to all students, including transferred students, international students, or current professionals. Updated information about these courses will be posted to the Wilson School of Design home page.

KPU is a teaching-focused university where we bring together students, teachers, guest lecturers and alumni to create a student-centred learning environment. Unlike larger universities, we keep our classes purposefully small so that you have the opportunity to work directly with faculty. Our small classes encourage teamwork and support while you're in the program, and help create a professional network once you've graduated.
