Explore Your Passions With a Wide Variety of Course Options

ISD’s interdisciplinary, holistic approach allows us to offer high-quality courses that are taught by world-renowned faculty members from across the university and industry experts who bring a diverse range of practices and methodologies.  

ISD Course Offerings

ISD courses are offered as a single “hybrid” course, with both an online section and an on-campus section.  This allows diverse global students to engage with each other in a fusion of skills and experiences in an interactive class environment.  ISD students have maximum flexibility in being able to elect each semester to take ISD courses as either an online student or an on-campus student (but not both at the same time).

The course lists below include only ISD’s course offerings; please refer to the course curriculum pages for the full list of all U-M courses included in ISD’s curriculum
