Westerdals Department of Creativity, Storytelling and Design

The core of Westerdal's Department of Creativity, Storytelling and Design lies in developing and conveying a message, whether through words, text, image, design or in the three-dimensional space.

The disciplines of creativity, storytelling and design include common denominators such as creativity, strategy, problem-solving, idea development, dissemination, concept development and visualisation.

This is something that is rooted in all the education programmes and forms the academic basis. All the programmes are practically oriented with the theoretical, methodological and scientific aspects as the foundation stones. The focus of the department is on communicating on different platforms or arenas in order to create change through a good solution and experiences.
