Strengths

A teaching ideology that gives equal weight to three key concentrations: product design, visual communication and eco-social design

Overview

Ensconced in a picture-perfect Alpine setting in Italy’s South Tyrol, aspiring designers in Bozen-Bolzano’s Faculty of Design and Art hone their “ability to create communication that involves all the senses and, through their creations, provoke a critical analysis of the status quo.” Imparting practical and intellectual tools through interdisciplinary and team-based learning, faculty take a two-pronged approach, looking to mould students’ professional development and also nurture their individual talents. Design, they propose, is a tool for “deep observation and knowledge in a way that few other disciplines do.” Programs are trilingual, involving Italian, German and English.
