Design at York
In our global society ideas flow fast and far, creating increasingly elaborate systems of interpersonal connection.
York Design students facilitate understanding in our rapidly evolving world by learning to conceptualize and devise objects, environments and innovative platforms that enhance human experience and interaction.
Explore and expand the boundaries of design. York Design draws strength from its home in a robust interdisciplinary university, offering both undergraduate and graduate students exposure and collaborative opportunities across the university, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the practice of design.
Pursue creative solutions to real-world problems. With the option to focus on one of three pathways: information design, interaction design and visual communication, York Design students pursue innovative solutions involving users, their contexts and interactions; design for immersive experiences and intelligent technologies; and the discovery of new knowledge through the visual presentation of complex information.
