The Master of Arts in Interaction Design (IxD) at the George Washington University’s Corcoran School is a unique program for emerging designers who are passionate about social innovation and ready to tackle complex, systemic problems.
Our location in the heart of downtown DC provides students unparalleled access to policymakers, media, organizations, and world-renowned cultural institutions.
Our program prepares you to create social change through a systems and human-centered framework. You will be trained to think critically about systems and design solutions that take the form of experiences, services, digital interfaces, and/or physical products. The end products are not prescribed from the outset, but emerge out of a rigorous, discipline-agnostic design process.
Students in our program have the opportunity to develop their design practice outside of the classroom, gaining hands-on experience through project work that crosses multiple sectors, including the public sector (by designing policy) and industry (by designing products and services).
At the Corcoran, you’ll find yourself embedded in a creative community where designers, artists, photojournalists, musicians, and performers connect in the classroom and beyond. You’ll study in newly renovated classrooms and studios and can take advantage of the resources a world-class research university provides. With the support of this dynamic environment and the guidance of knowledgeable faculty, you can expand your imagination of what interaction design can achieve while acquiring the skills to make your visions a reality.
We are now accepting applications and offering fellowships. For information and to apply, visit corcoran.gwu.edu/Interaction-Design.
