Course programme

Playing with facts, fictions and truths you’ll be encouraged to think that we need not confine ourselves to the world as it appears. Instead, the course stresses the capacity of texts, objects and spaces to playfully precipitate new ways of thinking about the social world. In exhibition, design interpretation and lighting modules you'll develop specific design skills which will inform and enable highly developed outcomes in your self-directed major project. Collaboration with practitioners from other areas is encouraged. This is a one year full-time course starting in September and is split up into three trimesters. You have the option of taking an MA or MDes award, depending on whether you complete a dissertation or design project report in your final trimester. Working with specialist tutors, the major project allows you to create and develop design outcomes for exhibitions, museum and heritage interpretation and/or site specific installations. We have a strong studio culture supported by our multidisciplinary staff team of academics and industry-based practitioners, allowing for cross-disciplinary critiques, collaborations and partnerships which may continue into professional life. You’ll develop creative, professional, strategic and contextual knowledge and skills and apply design thinking to a range of creative outcomes and design interventions.
