Why study this course

The research-led Textile Design MA addresses the needs of graduates from textile design and related discipline backgrounds, or those who wish to collaborate with professionals in the field. MA Textile Design is one of several postgraduate design courses that co-exist at the Cass, offering rich opportunities for the collaborative multidisciplinary approach that is a feature of the current and future design sector and a requirement for success in the field.

More about this course

The course is grounded in the understanding that design is a key driver for change in society and the environment. However, traditional roles in design are increasingly blurred and designers need to be able to negotiate complex and ambiguous problems. This means that the challenges and opportunities for design and designers are being constantly reimagined, as the unpredictability of the future tests our capacity to adapt, invent and apply creative design solutions to emerging needs.

Graduates of this course will challenge conventional ideas of what textiles are, and will design textiles and textile products that have not yet been conceptualised.
