MDes (Interdisciplinary)

MDes (Interdisciplinary)

The two-year-long program is structured around four on-campus academic terms of coursework and thesis development, and one academic term between the first and second year, dedicated to independent creative research within a supportive community.

As a student, you will explore and challenge the ways we cope with our ever-changing world. Students engage in the politics of place while seeking to support and establish viable, empathetic, dynamic relations in, for, with, and of our communities.

Diverse learning opportunities that include research seminars, studio classes, public presentations and exhibitions, and a series of lectures from renowned designers, will inform and supplement your practice, and deepen your professional development.

In a different rhythm of delivery, this three-year program supports critical, practice-based creative research and allows students more flexibility in managing a school-work balance. Students participate in research seminars and studio courses while developing a thesis project, and are encouraged to question and re-consider current assumptions connected to design.
