Do you want to use design to make a difference in the world? Then this is the right degree for you. At the Department of Design we work with students interested in making change in the world through design.
The Department of Design is made up of four programs: the Bachelor’s program in Design+Change, the Bachelor’s program in Visual Communication+Change, the Master’s program in Design+Change and the Master’s program in Innovation through Business, Engineering and Design. The programs are delivered in English and we welcome students from all over the world.
In shaping our futures, designers will face unprecedented challenges compared to what conventional designers faced during the twentieth century. In fact, the role of the designer will and should change. Our programs focus on making sustainable change through design to prepare you for a number of emerging and established careers in the world where you can use your creative skills in relation to your understanding of the complexity of sustainability.
Recent graduates from our programs work in design companies, artistic and cultural organisations, human rights organisations, NGOs, political parties, publications and with initiatives run by local communities or municipalities. Students have also gone on to start their own companies and many are currently attending graduate studies at prestigious Swedish universities.
