The Programme: overview

The MA enables students to understand the new social needs of the contemporary age, exploring new scenarios for the global designer. When it is aimed at defining social development strategies, the design is able to valorise human and natural resources, to drive sustainable innovation, to promote local communities development and to activate social evolution dynamics, through a global “coopetitive” approach. 

Over the MA, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn a design methodology crossed with the skills to operate in social, cultural and political initiatives
  • Develop projects aimed to activate social communities and to valorize environmental as well as urban and natural, contexts, through real case studies
  • Acquire the ability to read the social and cultural dynamics and to anticipate the possible future evolutions for the sustainable development of society
