Take Free Harvard Design Courses

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 2 min read

A lot of people ask, “Do I have to go to school to learn design?” Well, that’s kind of a mixed bag of a question, because it depends entirely on what type of person you are. Do you feel like you need the discipline that a classroom environment will provide, or do you prefer learning at your own pace from the comfort of your own home? Well if you want a combination of both, then maybe this new option from Alison and Harvard University will work for you.
Here’s the gist: Harvard has both free and paid online courses available on their website. Alison highlights the free ones, and gives you an easy way to search for what you want — like Design, for example. In fact, here are a few of the options between both sites:
Graphic Design – Visual and Graphic Design
Harvard Graduate School of Design Collection (DASH)
Digital Photography
Now admittedly, some of the Harvard courses at Alison are a bit more tech based, but you can find just as many design-related options at Harvard’s own portal, so you have options. Plus, no matter which way you go, it’s a good way to either keep up on your continuing education as a designer (nobody wants to get rusty), or start something new.
