Challenges for the Emerging City: Openlab Multidisciplinary Project Course 15 ECTS credits

Are you interested in working in interdisciplinary teams? Do you want to engage in societal challenges that relate to the future of expanding cities? If so, this project course is perfect for you. You work in a team with students from other disciplines and universities, with the goal to develop innovative ideas that meet sustainability challenges in e.g. environment and healthcare. The course, which is based at Openlab, is a collaboration between SU, KI, KTH and Södertörn University. The challenges are formulated in dialogue with our partners Stockholm City, County Council and County Administrative Board. By using design thinking as a model for solving complex problems, you learn methods for problem identification, idea generation, prototyping and problem solving. You are trained in the organisation of teamwork, and oral and visual presentation of ideas and solutions. In different workshops you learn the different phases of the design thinking model. The course ends with a creative project delivery for the team's challenge giver.

Area of interest: Arts and Humanities

How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context.

Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
