The two-year graduate program explores the strategic role of interaction design in shaping everyday life, and intends to increase the relevancy of design to business and society so designers can make a difference. It seeks to cultivate interaction design as a discipline and further its visibility as a community of practice.

Where we stand in the history of the future is a tremendous opportunity for the design of interactions. We invite all to participate as students, as teachers, as collaborators, and as citizens.
