Design in the artistic context of the twenty-first century has become an increasingly significant feature on the complex map of creation that has emerged with the appearance of new technologies and their impact on post-Fordist society, known as the society of knowledge and information.

Given this transformation and the challenges it raises, within the framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), in 2010 the Department of Education of the Government of Catalonia created the Escola Superior de Disseny i Arts Plàstiques de Catalunya (ESDAP), which teaches the Advanced Qualification in Design (equivalent to a university degree) in the four specialities that exist to date: Graphic, Interior, Fashion and Product design.
[Study of image in the world of fashion, in the process of constructing identities and collections].

INTERIOR / SPACE [Study of the language of space, its organisation, and the dialogue between proportion and deconstruction in the contemporary world]

PRODUCT / OBJECT [Study of objects, their impact and role in transforming social environments; production systems: uses and requirements].

GRAPHIC / ADVERTISING [Study of the organisation and the role of image in communication, its architecture: seduction and transgression]
There follows a list of values that define the ESDAP Catalunya, which provides the framework for teaching the Advanced Qualification, as verified by the University Quality Agency:

Territoriality, the institution has seven campus distributed throughout Catalonia:
Barcelona: Llotja campus and Deià campus / Badalona: Pau Gargallo campus/ Hospitalet de Llobregat: Serra i Abella campus / Olot: Olot campus / Tàrrega: Ondara campus / Vic: Vic campus.

Education for the public based on the pursuit of quality and excellence in a 240-credit educational programme run in small groups of a maximum of 25 students, that combines specificity and inter-disciplinary study in its specialities.

It strives to foster creativity and innovation and to encourage international mobility, with a view to preparing its students to respond to society’s changing knowledge and information scenarios.
