Institute of Design

The Institute of Design brings together designers and artists working at SWPS University. We specialize both in the practice and theory of design and visual arts. We contribute our talents and expertise to numerous cultural, research, social and economic initiatives.

Institute of Design SWPS University

What We do

Our projects are recognized and presented by the leading national and international cultural institutions. In collaboration with our partners, we create solutions, which shape the society, economy and culture. Working in international teams, we carry out research in the field of art and design, and experiment with art and design.

We collaborate with society and work for society, because we want to co-create our communities. We respond to the needs that must be addressed here and now but we also think about tomorrow. We are interested in methods, techniques and materials used in design and visual arts. For us, our experiments are a source of knowledge and reflection. We use an interdisciplinary approach in our projects, using the breadth of resources offered by SWPS University, which carries out research of the highest quality in the disciplines of social sciences and humanities.

Doctorates

SWPS University invites candidates interested in obtaining doctorates in fine arts and art conservation to apply to our Doctoral School or pursue the degree as an “external” student at our university.

“Design and art can no longer thrive without advanced knowledge, which increasingly often is developed as the result of engaging in design or art practice. Our graduates become experts who easily combine theory and practice, drawing upon the body of knowledge that has been accumulated in various areas and disciplines of science."
Karol Murlak, Ph.D. / Associate Professor
