Programme Overview

The Interaction Design programme at The Glasgow School ofArt explores the use of digital technology as a material in the practice of art and design – computers, cameras, sensors, lights, motors, projectors, networks and more. We consider technology not simply as a tool for the production of media but also as a medium in itself. We learn how to speak to the computer through creative coding, enabling students to engage in new media art and design practice facilitating the generation of engaging interactive digital media for a wide range of platforms. By framing the use of technology within a creative context, students learn practical and technological skills as well a show to articulate creative intent and considered interpretation. The programme is highly experimental allowing students to develop their own approaches to project briefs within an open and inclusive art school environment.You will graduate as a well-rounded ‘creative technologist’ inhabiting an important new space in the creative industries between traditionally separate worlds of art/design and science/engineering. All GSA degree programmes are validated by the University of Glasgow.
