You are able to bring your own research project or interests to develop through your study. Your research may be focused on past and/or contemporary forms of design, design practice, design ideologies, design research; it may also engage with the contexts in which design is produced and consumed, and with wider contextual fields. The submission for examination can be focused in writing or in practice, in many forms - what constitutes a practice research submission will be part of the ongoing debates on the programme.
Three strands of study will: introduce you to the theories/discourses inherent in design practice; encourage you to review and explore the methods and processes used to research and produce ideas for and about design; encourage you to locate topics and themes for research in particular areas of interest. A major research project will prepare you for further research in industry/professional practice or at MPhil/PhD level.
