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.

DOUBLE AWARD MASTER’S

The Double Award Master path allows students to obtain an Academic Master validated by the Italian MUR and a Master of Arts, with international validation in the UK from Regent’s University in London.

Students integrate additional lectures and a more in-depth individual project to their 5-module programme that includes the curricular internship and final project.

The UK validation gives students more international recognition of their course of study and the opportunity to obtain a Master of Arts Degree (90 ECTS) awarded by Regent’s University London that allows them access to most international doctoral programs.

Within their academic year, students enrolled in the Double Award Master’s Programme, have the opportunity to spend a week at Regent’s University London for a London study trip experience, with special teaching activities and visits to the most significant sites for creative trends. During their stay, students will have the opportunity to take part in tours to discover London’s most iconic places, museums and galleries.

THE COURSE

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.

All courses are taught in English. A high level of proficiency in the English language is required.
