The Master's programme in Design is intended to augment your capacity to work experimentally and reflectively and both formulate and approach problems in a critical and artistic way. You will be trained, for instance, to make creative decisions based on aesthetic as well as personal, social, environmental and other socially relevant aspects, and you will gain experience of different approaches, methods and design areas.
The Master's programme in Design offers two specialisations:
Individual Study Plan in Design
The specialisation Individual Study Plan offers you the opportunity to specialise in design through your own further study and personal development. You can focus on a professional career designing furniture, products or services, or choose a focus that is a hybrid and extension of these professions. Focus on complex social challenges, or work with design that transcends the object. You can also prepare yourself for a doctoral programme. The track is a development of the previous master's groups Experience Design and Industrial Design.
The specialisation Spatial Design offers individual specialisation and personal development in this sphere as well as the possibility of positioning yourself in a widening field undergoing change - architecture and spatial design. The track is an evolution of the previous master's group Inspace, and offers preparation for both professional careers and research.
The Master's programme in Design
The programme is based on artistic exploration and experimentation. Explorations that develop your thought processes and enhance your capacity to comprehend. And experimentation, physical projects that increase the possibilities of surprises, learning and insights that in their turn generate unexpected and new creations. The combination of the two, often in mutual cooperation, encourages the transgression of disciplinary boundaries, systems of thought and practices, all on the basis of the programme's watchwords – change, new tools, links and diversity.
Our ambition is to use cooperation and fervent individual commitment to influence the world so that with the help of what we create, which will to varying degrees invite engagement and signal change, we will increase people's possibilities of exerting influence.
Society needs different kinds of thinking and expertise. To meet these needs we offer you the possibilities of individual specialisation for both your own personal development and a more explicit positioning in a widening field that is undergoing change – design.
