Seeking a HISTORY OF GRAPHIC/INDUSTRIAL DESIGN class. NYC

I am not a designer. However, I have many friends who are designers and while I know a lot about industrial and graphic design already, I would love to really BONE UP on the nitty gritty of both fields.

Can anyone suggest a good intensive history/theory course on either graphic or industrial design in the New York City area?

Thank you soooo much.

no, but you can read the book by carma gorman, the industrial design reader. thats what we read in our industrial design history class, and from what I hear its pretty widely used.

Pratt offers an ID history class. I would recommend the graduate level version. I am sure they offer a bunch of Graphic Design history classes as well.

I’m not sure what the audit/continuing ed prices are.
