Tiny houses are a big topic in our era of expensive, insecure housing for many. This program will explore all facets of the tiny house movement and students can expect to learn its history, fixed and mobile options, styles, design considerations, materials, water, energy and waste management, costs, codes and zoning regulations, and how tiny house villages are being created for the unhoused.

Learning activities will include significant reading across popular webpages, books, and scholarly research articles, asynchronous video watching, seminar discussions, and touring tiny house projects either virtually or in-person depending on current access and regulations.

Learning will be assessed through weekly at-home, open-book quizzes, weekly discussion posts in response to seminar discussions, and completion of a final research or tiny house design project.

The program is offered for 12 or 16 credits, those attempting 12 credits will not be required to complete the final project.
