ACADEMIC MASTER'S PROGRAMME
DOUBLE AWARD MASTER'S
The Master’s in Interaction Design programme is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the programme leader, and project leaders will guide you via individual coaching and mentorship.
The combination of accredited coursework and real-life professional projects gives students the opportunity to build on their academic foundation, while gaining valuable work experience directly applicable to their future careers.
Students can apply to the Academic Master’s Programme, accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, or to the Master of Arts degree with an international UK validation.
Graduates of the Academic Master’s Programmes earn a degree that is recognised throughout Europe and the world, receiving an Academic Master’s Degree (60 ECTS credits) accredited by the Italian Ministry of Universities and Research (MUR)*, in addition to a Domus Academy Master’s Diploma.
The programme consists of 5 modules, including a curricular internship and a final project workshop.
* The academic Master’s Degree is awarded by NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti.
From September 2021, Domus Academy will expand the offering for students with the addition of a double award master’s programme path. This will enable student to obtain an Academic Master’s Degree validated by the Italian MUR and a Master of Arts degree, with an international UK validation from Regent’s University London.
Students will be able to integrate the current master programme path consisting of 5 modules including a curricular internship and a final project workshop with additional classes and a more in-depth individual final project.
The UK validation will give students a more international recognition of their study path and the possibility to gain a Master of Arts Degree (90 ECTS) issued by Regent’s University London that will enable them to access to the majority of international PhD programmes.
Interaction design is about creating a product, service, or space that people will interact with through an intuitive visual and haptic (tactile) interface.
In the Master’s in Interaction Design programme, you will learn to define problems and solutions in the field of interaction and user experience.
As you create enriched experiences through innovative technology, you will be encouraged to transform your original design visions into market opportunities.
The program is addressed to candidates who have a first-level degree and/or professional experience in design (product, visual, graphic, media, or web design) or in architecture, computer science, or engineering.
It is also open to candidates with experience in communication science, psychology, sociology, or equivalent, if they are motivated by interest in information design and have a strong portfolio.
All courses are taught in English. A high level of proficiency in the English language is required.
