Course content

This programme is taught at the GSA's campus in the Highlands of Scotland.

The relationship between humanity and technology has shaped the world as we experience it, whether these technologies were agricultural, industrial or, as they are today, digital.

The interaction between social, cultural and technological aspects of life defines the study of Interaction Design as a field of enquiry. Interaction is no longer merely a technological phenomenon, rather it is relational; it links every aspect of social life.

People experience their environment and interaction with others mediated through new technologies. Interaction Design considers not only the opportunities that designed products or system provide, but also the space and relationships with the people who are affected.
