Lighting Design

The Lighting Design Certificate program provides intensive study in lighting design for individuals who are beginning a new career, making a career change, or seeking to enhance their existing art or design skills in a related field. The program combines the theoretical study of lighting conditions and effects with the acquisition of technical skills about the design of lighting systems in both indoor and outdoor spaces. The program intends to prepare students to enter and be competitive in the field of lighting design (SOC 27-1025) or to augment their current design practices and experience.
