Our program will equip you to address the ultimate design challenges with worldwide impact. Recognizing the high level of demonstrated need and demand for designers and developers with specialized knowledge in designing for diversity, both in Canada and abroad, OCAD U offers an innovative graduate program in Inclusive Design. Inclusive Design is design that is inclusive of the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of human difference.
The focus of the Master of Design (MDes) in Inclusive Design will be on building expertise in inclusive digital media and information and communication technologies (ICT) and practices. This innovative program will produce graduates with the capacity to form, lead and sustain a much-needed community of expertise on digital inclusion, which will span multiple sectors. Graduates will apply their studies in all sectors that engage digital media and ICT systems, including government, education, private sector business, public sector, entertainment, arts, culture and health. The program will take advantage of the knowledge, experience, research networks and global open source communities of the internationally recognized centre of expertise, the Inclusive Design Research Centre.
The MDes in Inclusive Design is a low residency two-year program with an executive style delivery format to accommodate the needs of working professionals and international students. The program is open to applicants with academic background and/or expertise in digital media or ICT.
