Parsons The New School for Design announced a new MFA in Transdisciplinary Design set to launch in Fall 2010. The program is based in the School of Design Strategies at Parsons, which encompasses innovative programs that apply design thinking to study the intersection of cities, services and ecosystems.
Jamer Hunt will direct the new program. Armed with a PhD in Anthropology and current experience as the chair of Parson's Urban Design Program, Hunt is ready to explore an impressive range of design problems: "From reinvigorating the public sphere to fostering sustainable everyday practices, the MFA in Transdisciplinary Design will create an environment for learning and experimentation."
And Hunt's not alone. With faculty and advisors like BusinessWeek's Bruce Nussbaum and Fiona Raby of the UK's Dunne & Raby design consultancy on board, this program is gonna be a force!
As all innovators know, the ramp-up period of a new project is a super exciting and inspiring time. So follow along as this team gathers goodies for their fall 2010 launch. Check out the Transdisciplinary Design blog right here.
