Create. Experience. Communicate. BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts is a practice-led, experimental course focusing on the relationship between people, designed objects and experiences. You will work with narrative, moving image and filmmaking, alongside processes such as design prototyping and physical computing. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).
What can you expect?
Working within the philosophy of 'high-tech, low-tech and no-tech', students are encouraged to pursue projects that put people at the centre of their design and arts practice. As well as developing personal work, students have the opportunity to regularly collaborate with local communities on long-term human-centred projects.
Our specialist studios are constructed as a designer’s playground that will nurture and encourage creativity and learning, through the formation of a community of practice. There is also access to traditional media such as letterpress, printmaking and photography.
Drawing on a tradition of dynamism, exploration, prototyping and experimentation, students of BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts are taught that the only boundaries are those set by the imagination and that creative ideas hold sway over technology. Students on the course understand that design impacts the world at large and that they have a responsibility for the wider issues of sustainability and social inclusiveness.
You will graduate from your studies able to approach industry with the confidence to negotiate many specialisms across the full media spectrum. You'll leave with a wide range of technical, intellectual and design skills that will ensure that you're ready to work in this challenging and exciting area of contemporary design.
