Acquiring the media expertise needed to design human connections and communications

The Media Design Course trains ambitious individuals who will usher in a new era of media design. The course inherits and further develops the rich educational and research traditions and resources of the Department of Visual Communication Design and Department of Art and Information Design. The term “media” does not only include content that represents information. It encompasses the hardware and software required to use this information as well as the means for transmitting that information. Media design refers to making full use of media to design connections and communications between people.
In this course, students will learn media design systematically and comprehensively through a curriculum based on the following three elements:
(1) "What to express and how to express it"
Learning design and artistic expression (media expression)
(2) "How to connect people with others and foster communication"
Learning technical methods for communication (media interaction)
(3) "How do people connect and communicate with each other?"
Understanding the human being as the object of communication and learning about human behavior and society (media communication science)
