Hello. Nice to meet you!

Welcome to the homepage of the international interdisciplinary Master’s degree program Open Design/Diseño Abierto para la Innovación, which is jointly organized by the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) and the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA).

 

The program is organized in four semesters, the first two semesters taking place in Buenos Aires at the UBA and the third semester in Berlin at the HU. For the fourth semester, students may choose to work on their master’s thesis in either Buenos Aires or Berlin.

 

Successful graduates will be awarded a Double Degree by the two partner universities.

 

What career perspectives do I have?

With the program’s main focus being the interdisciplinary »design turn« in research, students acquire interdisciplinary skills relating to a broad spectrum of empirical methodologies that encompass cultural studies and humanities through analysis and historicizing, scientific experimentalisation from the natural sciences, and creative synthesis from the design disciplines.

 

The program prepares students in specific social and intercultural competencies, including critical reflection in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team; linguistic skills (English, German, Spanish); and experience in communication between internationally differentiated cultures of knowledge.
