School of Design: Programs

 

Explore new creative horizons

The programs in the School of Design were created to flow into each other organically while functioning as independent, self-contained modules. Students can enter through the Art and Design Foundation program - G108 for a solid introduction to the field. This program opens up many diverse possibilities for students in addition to serving as excellent preparation for our Graphic Design program - G102 or Game Development - G109 program.

Our Graphic Design program provides students with the intensive training necessary to work in the industry. As well, it provides an outstanding knowledge and skill base for our innovative post-diploma programs.

Our four post-diploma programs - the Interdisciplinary Design Strategy (Post-Graduate) - G414 (IDS), Design Management - G401, Digital Design - Game Design (Post-Graduate) - G405 and Digital Design - Advanced Digital Design (Post-Graduate) - G402 - are unique, cutting-edge experiences. Top students who wish to continue their digital education can proceed directly to our Game Design and Advanced Digital Design programs. The other programs – the IDS and Design Management – are geared to people with more work experience. The IDS at the Institute Without Boundaries prepares people for work in design and strategic consulting, and Design Management prepares people to work as design managers or design entrepreneurs.
