graduate programme in Design






 The graduate program in Design is held jointly with the Università Iuav di Venezia. The changing context of contemporary design, characterized by the growing number of multimedia tools and digital devices, requires a specific approach to these new areas of design with a critical and responsible attitude. Our curriculum matches the most advanced international university programs, and considers the current status of the manufacturing industry and the demands of the job market.

Educational programme

The proposed curricula in Motion Graphic Design and Interaction Design explore two innovative spheres of product and visual design. The curriculum is organized into design studios and theory classes, covering the areas of product design, visual design, motion, service and interaction design. Attendance is mandatory. The design disciplines constitute the core of the curriculum, around which the scientific, technological, critical and economic studies are structured, with the addition of technical training to support the design work.


The Università degli Studi della Repubblica di San Marino and the Università Iuav di Venezia award the Master’s Degree in Design, valid in both Italy and San Marino, which serves as a pre-requisite for Ph.D programs and national and international second-level Master programs.


The Program trains highly specialized professionals who may find employment as free-lance professionals, in business, in agencies and professional firms and in workplaces that require inter-disciplinary skills in product, visual and interaction design. In particular, employment opportunities may be found in cinema, television, multi-media publishing, the cultural industry, as well as in companies and firms interested in projects with a high-level degree of technology, digital agencies and companies working in the field of ICT – Information and Communication Technology, in research institutes and Research & Development centers.
