Description

When aimed at the definition of social development strategies, Design can bring out the best of both human and natural resources, as well as create sustainable innovation in any political and social context in the world. It can promote the development of local communities and identities, trigger social evolution and gender emancipation processes, and activate new economies on a small or large scale.

Social Design can shape and envision a better future through a global "coopetitive" approach.

The Master of Arts in Design - Social Design will provide the students with the necessary tools to understand the new needs of the complex contemporary society, and to explore the possible scenarios within the global designer job in today's and tomorrow's world.
