      The design of the American home is changing as a result of economic, civic, and cultural forces. Examples of this include multiple generations are living together once again, people are choosing to "age in place" instead of moving into senior living, and individuals with a range of disabilities are choosing to live independently. Designers who can respond to these changes with insight and sensitivity will be able to function more effectively in this new residential marketplace.

      This certificate has been created to help you develop fluency in universal design by providing you with a working knowledge of design solutions to create home environments that are functional, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing for all residents. You will improve your ability to create design solutions for residences that are responsive to the unique needs of individuals at all stages of the human lifecycle. You will gain skill in specifying products and materials that are appropriate for your clients with a range of conditions and disabilities now and as they age. This should give you an advantage with clients in the residential design marketplace.
