The MFA in Interaction Design department at SVA is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2013 Summer Intensive in Interaction Design. This year’s program runs from July 8 through August 2 and features four specialized courses that give participants the opportunity to dive deeper into areas of research, creative coding, information visualization, and the practice of Interaction Design. With evening classes, the Summer Intensive has always been an ideal opportunity for those contemplating the cost or time commitment of graduate school, giving working professionals and prospective graduate students the chance to work side-by-side as they take their skills further.
“This year we’ll be complimenting the program with creative workshops that give hands-on experience and exposure with electronics prototyping, creating data-driven artifacts, and improvisation” says Frank Bonomo, the program’s organizer. “You’ll have a chance to make or try something fun between studio and class time, while expanding what you learn.”
Now in its fifth year, the Summer Intensive in Interaction Design has become a perennial favorite for those looking to make the leap into Interaction Design, or to sharpen newfound areas they may have found themselves struggling with at work.
Carve out some time for yourself this summer and find the course that’s right for you. Registration is now open.
Courses take place July 8-August 2 in the evenings, from 6:00-9:00 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays over the course of one month. In addition to evening classes, the summer program offers optional scheduled workshops and tours to New York design studios. Enrollment in any course provides daytime access to a shared studio workspace and use of department facilities. Participants can receive Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credit upon successfully completing a course.
You can register online for one course, a combination, or all four. The cost of each course is $1,100 USD. Optional workshops may incur a nominal lab/materials fee per session.
