Areas of Expertise

The twelve areas of expertise stand at the center of studies at KISD – Köln International School of Design. These are the basis for an interdisciplinary and project-oriented design program, in which the students can develop their individual main focuses. Every student in our BA program has to enroll for at least eight of the twelve areas of expertise within his or her study at KISD.
