Integrated Design (B.A.)

© Hochschule für Künste Bremen – Anja Segermann

The study programme Integrated Design (ID) is unique in Germany in its consistent and comprehensive focus. The bachelor's programme does not differentiate between the traditional disciplines of design, but rather focuses on overarching, conceptual creativity. In this way, ID is reacting to the changes in the design profession: In addition to the traditional “industrial design”, the post-industrial society has created a variety of new fields of activity that require different profiles.

Especially as an academic institution dedicated to the arts and music, the HfK Bremen can meet these requirements through an expanded concept of design: design not only aims at the practicality of form and purpose, it also shapes the social and cultural, ecological and economic relevance of creations in society. The BA degree therefore teaches how to deal with complex issues as an attitude and responsibility of creators.

Lecturers at the Faculty of Integrated Design offer comprehensive insights into the general field of design through their different focuses. Close collaboration between students and teachers is of central importance in the course.
