Whenever we want to communicate complex content, design interactive systems and scenarios or tell multi-layered digital stories, we need approaches far beyond established forms of communication and interaction. The Design and Interaction programme at the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences will help you acquire the skills you need. 


Programme details

In addition, interfaces have become more and more present in everyday life. They enable us to communicate with each other, different objects and surroundings and their increasing importance calls for new scenarios and solutions that have to be developed and designed.

In the light of these challenges, our English-language master’s degree programme in Design and Interaction at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences focuses on technologically supported forms of interaction and future communication scenarios. With a clear emphasis on the interface and translation competence of design as well as the design of (user) interfaces, we will support you in becoming a responsible, conceptually strong and content-oriented designer.

This course is a three-semester follow-on master´s degree programme. At the beginning, there is a series of intensive workshops which will help you to assess and reflect on your individual level in the context of the degree programme and explore the spectrum of study content.
