Body

Welcome Back to the Summer Semester 2015

 

Dear Students,
DIA welcomes you back to the summer semester and welcome the new exchange students joining us this semster in its Master Program which has taken up speed from having initially 10 students more than a decade ago to now about 220 participants from over 50 countries. It is this multi facetted atmosphere within the course, which is its trademark. And all this is mostly created by you.

I hope you can enjoy your time here in Dessau and take back both a unique academic experience and a valuable degree when you return home. The DIA teaching staff is looking forward to sharing this experience with you. If you should run into difficulties of any kind and at any time during your stay here, do not hesitate to contact us.


Kindly yours,
Prof. Alfred Jacoby, Director DIA

 

Curriculum DIA

As of 2010 the Directory Board at DIA decided to introduce a division of teaching at DIA into a First and Second Year. This is necessary to insure competent and thoughtful teaching at Mastercourse Level at DIA with its 200+ students. This means there will be separate teaching units for the 4 Compulsory Courses for each of the two years with a list of common electives which are offered and open for both years. (First Year = 1st and 2nd Semester and Second Year = 3rd and 4th Semester). This Summer Semester will therefore have approx. 90 Students who are going to finish their Thesis this semester. The First Year will still offer different Studios of choice.

 

First Year Studios

In the First Year, Studios offered run only over the period of one semester. This should give students a chance to experience different thematic possibilities before focussing on the thesis Year. Studios will be lead by a Studio Master and take place twice a week. They earn a student 10 ects credits and are regarded as the core of the mastercourse. The studios introduced here are restricted in attendance to First Year Students at DIA.

 

Each students have to choose one of these studios as a first choice and another one as second choice. After attending the introduction you can check the studio Briefs in the links below, if you are intrested click on the enrollment link (will be available on 1st April 8:00 PM) and join the studio communication group. write on the wall your choice either its your First or Second.

 

Your portfolios have to be uploaded to the portfolio directory, which is used by teachers in case they have more students appying than they can accept at their studio or elective.

Electives

 

DIA offers a broad spectrum of different electives this semester. These courses offer students the choice of
either deepening their knowledge in a special field or to venture into a theme that is very different to the task tackled in their studio.

First Year Students have to choose two out of the offered courses at DIA. Registration restrictions due to capacity concerns may apply.

Two electives make one module which gives you 5 credits. You only get credits if (or as soon as) you have completed two electives successfully.
