Design is diversity. That is why we allow you to choose your own specialization from among eleven design disciplines: From film and photography to graphics, text, and illustration or even the design of digital media, spaces, and objects.

Following an orientation semester, you will study three equally weighted modules in parallel. As a result, not only will you gain a diverse range of multidisciplinary skills over the course of your studies, you will also gain integrated design expertise across a range of media.
