Design, Master's, 2 years

  • Years2 Years
  • ECTS credits120


Objectives and content

The master¿s programme is an opportunity for specialisation with a time frame that allows for experimentation, trial and error, and change of standpoint. Each student applies to the programme with a project and are thus their own source and main instrument. The main focus of the programme is development of the master¿s project, which is a major, independent project. Students choose a specialisation within one of the areas of study at the Department of Design.

Specialisation involves investigating, experimenting and combining fragments and raw materials as a basis for design processes that are expressed in visions and concepts. Master¿s students must strike a balance between their own perspectives and others¿ views, general considerations and their own goals, and the world as it is today and future needs.

The master¿s programme integrates theory and practice, with emphasis on the relationship between design as a creative practice and design as a theoretical subject. Research through design requires interaction and synergies between different working methods and approaches, as well as between own creative work and critical reflection.
