School of Design

Harnessing technical know-how to the human imagination in the service of societal change, Design at the University of the Arts prepares you to make your mark.

Programs in the School of Design challenge students to re-envision the world around them — to make it smarter, more useful, more sustainable, more beautiful. With a solid foundation in contemporary professional practices and the history of design, students collaborate, innovate and experiment. They take risks to create new solutions ranging from a mobile web application to a perfect chair, from an advertising campaign to a more efficient workflow in a factory.

Design matters and in the School of Design, you'll discover why it does in a thousand surprising ways.
