main focus

BA Graphic Design: In this program, focus is on design for a sustainable society. The mixture of graphic design and visual communication and a niche in packaging design, is an unbeatable combination when it comes to designing ideas that make a difference. Reflecting the digitalization of society, courses and projects in digital design are fundamental parts as well as the principles of universal design. During their 3-year-study, students are trained to use their skills and imaginations to change society and move markets towards new modes and behaviors. Here, knowledge and understanding in scientific research and artistic processes are prerequisite for being able to make conscious and relevant design decisions for the many people and the environment. That is why we implemented the UN's global goals for sustainable development in BA Graphic design education plan at Mid Sweden University.

BA Industrial Design: A big part of being an industrial designer is to be good at analysing problems and to solve those problems with design solutions. You need to see and understand how people act in different situations. You will also learn how design is affecting the environment, people and structures in the society. The education is focusing at both theoretical and practical learning to give you the tools to work as a professional designer.

Courses in Photography
Our world is increasingly dependent on visual communication, with more than 1.8 billion photographs uploaded to the Internet each day. How do we make meaning of this abundance of imagery? What messages are we sending out when we post, share or publish a given image? How can photography be used in artistic and academic research? Our courses in photography provide participants from a variety of fields with a foundation in visual literacy of - and through -photography.
