About the Programme
On the Information Architecture programme, you learn to design and develop contents and structure in various information systems, for example, websites and software programmes.
You study subjects like information ecology, categorisation, knowledge organisation and rhetoric, where you learn how to communicate appropriately and effectively to specific target groups.
You will work with the association between form and contents and learn the terms 'persuasive design', which deals with how you motivate users to use information systems in a specific way, and 'strategies for change'.
Persuasive design's starting point is the user and the situation he or she is in. An important part of the work in developing information systems is, therefore, also about researching and understanding the tasks, work routines, attitudes and needs the user of the system has.
Teaching is organised, first and foremost, as problem-oriented project work. There will also be lectures and classroom instruction. A portion of the lessons takes place in cooperation with businesses.
