Our Master of Design (MDes) is a practice based, research-oriented degree for creative professionals at the forefront of design.
The program supports critical, practice-based creative research, combining instruction from expert faculty with independent supervised thesis research.
Throughout your degree, you will cultivate your thesis project. Your thesis project is a creative product comprised of a practical and written component. Your chosen area of work and thesis development will be fostered in studio classes, and research seminars by skilled faculty with a diverse range of design expertise. Further guidance will be provided by your thesis supervisor.
This program is for designers who take risks, think unconventionally, seek to foster change, and actively contribute to local and global cultural economies.
