MFA in Interaction Design

Masters programme, 120 ECTS-credits

Developments in Information Technology have challenged industrial design tradition by demanding a shift of emphasis from the idea of "product-as-object" towards the notion of "product-as-event" where the dynamic and interactive qualities of products and services need to be better understood in the context of human behaviour. This shift of focus has inspired us to develop our Interaction Design Programme and to initiate new areas of research in the design field.

Our Interaction Design Programme deals with the relation between people and Information Technology with a particular focus on the interaction between product and user. We see the discipline of Interaction Design as the ability to design both the cognitive and physical interface and integrate them into a successful whole.

Master in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy and Classical Philology

University of Gothenburg: Faculty of Arts
Campus Full time September 2018 Sweden Gothenburg

The study of the history of philosophy is a historical as well as a philosophical discipline. It is philosophical because it seeks the origins of contemporary philosophical debates. It is historical because it seeks to understand these origins on their own terms and in their own context. [+]

The study of the history of philosophy is a historical as well as a philosophical discipline. It is philosophical because it seeks the origins of contemporary philosophical debates. It is historical because it seeks to understand these origins on their own terms and in their own context. Consequently, its practitioners must be not only philosophically competent but also proficient in the use of historical methods.

Moreover, in the Ancient and Medieval Western world, philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Thomas Aquinas and William Ockham wrote in either Greek or Latin. This means that anyone who wants to know what these philosophers really said, without the distortions inevitably caused by translations, must also have a grasp of the classical languages and such related auxiliary disciplines as paleography and textual criticism....
