We are offering a BA/MA individual student project course, with the common theme of "Visualizations for Social Good".  We offer a range of topics for the course reflecting different social aspects such as education, energy, urban planning, pollution, global disease outbreaks, etc. The individual projects will be aimed towards implementing prototypes that enable visual analysis of the real world  data on various social aspects. 

Besides the listed topics, students are also welcome to suggest a topic of their own interest within the theme “Visualization for Social Good”, on which they would like to work during the course. The course will be engaging, challenging, and offer plenty of learning opportunities.
