Overview

A master's degree that explores and develops graphics projects for advanced digital fields, based on new paradigms of interaction.

To innovate in the digital world, designers who specialize in visual communication need to manage and know how to exploit every possibility offered by interaction and communication technology on the web. With this objective, the official master's degree offers the student specialized training in research and a professional career in the area of interactive digital interface design. The student will learn how to bring innovative solutions and new, valuable proposals to a market which urgently demands new professionals. In the same way, the student will train as a researcher capable of understanding the fundamentals and methodologies of research in digital design, in relation to trends in communication, digital culture, and ICTs.

The master's degree positions project-based experience in graphic design and art direction for interactive digital projects, at the center of the person-technology-business trinomial, so that the students can design interactions with new digital ecosystems in mind. It will deal with the great theoretical paradigms of communication and sociology which concern digital society, as well as the methodologies and tools for researching, conceiving, developing and designing interactive digital solutions. It will take an in-depth look at research in design, user experience design, design management and innovation, interaction, and graphics interface, in languages of digital interface development and basic open-source programming for appliances in the space.
