The Interactive Media Design programme of Royal Academy of Art, The Hague aims to influence society by designing meaningful interactivity between people, machines, systems, processes, societies and cultures - where "human" is always the main factor.

To this end, the students learn how to develop a critical and engaged understanding and standpoint towards social and cultural issues, with strong leadership and entrepreneurial skills. Emphasis is placed upon the development of high quality, traditional and digital design skills, while, at the same time, the promotion of aesthetic, ethical, social and cultural theory and sensitivity fosters an open, artistic approach. Experimentation and research into new areas of design innovation and collaboration - such as bio-hacking, artificial intelligence, the maker movement, intelligent objects and co-design - is complemented by a focus on practical concerns of social application and impact.

Professional Perspective

After graduation, you will be able to work as a designer on many different social and cultural levels, engaging creatively with other professionals and with the public to create new solutions for complex problems, using your artistic intuition and design skills. Our graduates work successfully for commercial or public design agencies and NGOs or start their own creative practices in the independent sector throughout the world.
