Master's Degrees in Design

Our Master of Design (MDes) is a two-year, full-time, research-oriented, degree for creative professionals at the forefront of design. There are two courses of study in this program – an interdisciplinary course of study or a concentration in interaction design.

The Master of Design program supports critical, practice-based creative research, combining instruction from expert faculty with independent supervised thesis research. Courses in studio practice, research and critical theory integrate methodologies that span diverse design contexts and approaches.

This program is for designers who take risks, think unconventionally, seek to foster change, and actively contribute to local and global cultural economies.
