The Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice is expanding the specialties of graphic design, visual communication, product design and multimedia, with two new specified programs. The first is Inclusive Design: Health and Social Well-Being. This is a new interdisciplinary design education program that prepares graduates to take on complex design challenges. These challenges are to address areas related to enhancing the quality of life and caring for the health of audiences by including them in the design process in various design disciplines: from services or applications, to designing medical equipment, to co-creating places or events and strengthening the bonds of local communities.
The second program is Designing Reading Experience and Interactive Storytelling developing skills related to designing reading experience and storytelling based on narrative, interaction and time-based media.
