Master of Arts in Design
Designers shape the world we live in. They are increasingly taking on leading roles in the conception and management of products and processes in business. At the same time, due to the omnipresence of design within today's climate of rapid technological and social development, there is a growing need for research into creative processes and their effects. This enables design practice to react to these changes with adequate answers, as well as forming and steering further developments.
The core of the Master of Arts in Design consists of the linking together of theory, practice and research; the investigation of the processes which lie behind design practice and the consequent focus on social, economic and other aspects relevant to design. In our Masters Degree programme, we offer students the opportunity to expand and hone their creative abilities. Furthermore, they will gain the required competence to position themselves in the market and manage complex processes. The programme thus enables them to fulfil their roles in supporting and adding value to the worlds of business, culture and institutions, consciously and self-confidently.
Students are free to choose between seven areas of specialisation, all of which explore the creative process in depth. These are: Animation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Product Design, Service Design, Short Motion, and Textiles.
