Savannah College of Art and Design to Offer MFA in Service Design
Peter Fossick, professor of industrial design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, is leading an effort to establish an MFA program in Service Design for Fall 2009. They’re also recruiting faculty. Here’s an overview of the program [PDF 116K].
The proposed MFA in Product and Service Design will be the first of its kind in the USA […] SCAD has the opportunity to set precedent through an engaging curriculum, in an inspiring environment, lead by the Department of Industrial Design but engaging with a range of disciplines across SCAD’s schools.
New language, tools, techniques and methodologies will be reviewed and developed to form a range of approaches and knowledge assets that will inform and shape the emergent discipline of Service Design.
They propose 25 hours of service design coursework to complement a lineup of art, industrial design, interaction design and design management instruction.
