Hochschule Düsseldorf, University of Applied Sciences (HSD for short) offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary range of subjects. Two of its seven faculties are the Design Faculty and the Architecture Faculty. They have recently joint forces to form the Peter Behrens School of Arts (PBSA).
StatementThe Applied Art and Design Programs are part of the Peter Behrens School of Arts. Both the Bachelor and the Master Program have their focus on the development of artistic concepts for objects, jewellery and products as unique pieces or as designs for serial production. A great openness to all kinds of art and design, oscillating between the poles of both art and design and craft and technology, is one of the defining characteristics.
Applied Art and Design Düsseldorf promotes a comprehensive understanding of artistic strategies, the objective and proficient handling of materials and techniques, and an openness for design experimentation. The broad-ranging program is further enhanced by the curricular integration with the Communication Design Program and enables students to pursue unique and distinctive focal points determined by their individual interests. The form-oriented Bachelor degree program provides the entire spectrum of basic creative techniques, methods and media that are both necessary and important for the profession of jewellery, object and product design. The graduate research-based Master's program provides a high level of individualised study to extend and refine the skills and knowledge gained in the BA Applied Art and Design.
Applied Art and Design Düsseldorf bundles ist competences in the following five fields:
- Jewellery and Contextual Art
- Product concepts for one-off pieces and series
- Design for Mass Production
- Concepts for jewellery and products using digital design and production processes
- Performative Prototyping
The Peter Behrens School of Arts of the Hochschule Düsseldorf offers nine different programs, leading to both to a Bachelor's and to a Master's degree.
Bachelor of Arts: Applied Art and Design, Communication Design, Retail Design and Architecture.
