Northwestern University School of Professional Studies has announced a new master’s program in Information Design and Strategy (IDS). The MS in IDS is an interdisciplinary program that incorporates of graphic design, business leadership, data analytics, and more. It’s also a field that many of our staff have a professional interest in, as we determine some of the best ways to share educational information through the courses that we help to create.
The course development process will be starting soon, and we’re looking forward to working with IDS faculty to build their courses—and learn even more about information design in the process. Check out Northwestern’s press release for more on the background of the program, and visit the program page for more information about the required courses and specializations. Applications to the program are due by July 15, 2015.
