INSTITUTION: Finlandia University International School of Art & Design (ISAD)
DEGREE OFFERED: Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sustainable Design (BFA)
DESCRIPTION: Interdisciplinary Designers at the International School of Art + Design of Finlandia University use the integrated skills and creativity of product designers, architectural-space planners and sustainable systems designers to engage issues of function, taste, comfort, health, safety, environmental stewardship and universal access. 21st century Interdisciplinary Designers are designers who don't fit into prescribed boxes. They specialize at being non-specialists. They are adaptable, flexible, and quite comfortable crossing professional boundaries to create integrated concepts that solve real problems for real people.
Another component of ISAD is the Finlandia University Sustainable Keweenaw Resource Center. The SKRC is both a Keweenaw community green directory online, and an on-the-ground destination where community members can gather for meetings, review books/periodicals/brochures on sustainability, inspect green product samples, or maybe just interact with the ‘What is Sustainable Keweenaw?' Ideas Board. At the SKRC, green businesses and organizations post green resources in the form of products, materials and services.
ISAD Interdisciplinary Designers draw on the SKRC to find meaningful community design projects and collaborations and test their sustainable systems design skills by applying them to community design challenges.
The International School of Art & Design at Finlandia University invites you to study design that really works.
