The MA programme Design Cultures is all about the study of product design, graphic design and fashion in a broad diverse cultural context.
The focus is on both the designer as 'author' and the complex chain of production, sale, consumption and criticism in which design operates and derives its many different meanings. Design Cultures restores design as the core object of academic interest without detracting from the cultural and material context in which it operates. The programme combines a generalist, comparative approach to design with a clear focus on history and theory. The programme is taught in English and is intended for an international audience. It is a one-year programme, starting in September, within the MA Arts and Culture.
