Requalification Course for the Degree in Design for graduates of the Higher Degree in Design (UPF's own degree). Course 2020-21/2021-22
Elisava currently offers, among other studies, the Degree in Design in the branch of knowledge of arts and humanities, an official degree from Pompeu Fabra University approved within the framework of the European Higher Education Area. The Elisava Degree in Design has been fully recognized as an official university study since the 2009-10 academic year.
Consequently, the Requalification Course aims to ensure that all students who, since 1995, have completed the Higher Degree in Design (GSD), a degree from Pompeu Fabra University, are equated with graduates of the Degree in Design (GDIS).
The current Degree in Design - arts and humanities - offered by Elisava is the result of the experience accumulated in the different curricula of the GSD that have been offered since the 1995-96 academic year and in the Degree in Design - engineering and architecture- currently endangered. As a result of this background, the current GDIS curriculum is very similar to that of the GSD, sharing the essence, methodologies and approach of the future graduate. However, it is necessary to emphasize the obvious need to update knowledge in the field of the new technologies and social models, as well as the disappearance of the subjects of scientific type, when unfolding the new plan in the branch of Arts and Humanities. It is for this reason, and by the fact that we adapt the current curriculum to the requirements of the European Higher Education Area, that the requalification course involves taking respectively, according to the curriculum carried out in GSD (the of 1995 or 2001), five or three compulsory subjects that correspond to those fields of Design that were not contemplated in the respective curricula plus the realization of a Final Degree Project given that the current academic arrangement explicitly stipulates that this must be carried out in a mandatory manner, not being the subject of any type of recognition by another project already carried out.
