Course content

This programme explores digital theory, history, and cultures, in all their guises: from design and fabrication, to many related fields and disciplines that are being affected and transformed by the new digital paradigm.

Conceived as a research laboratory, this programme offers a hybrid pedagogical format where learning and experiments, inspired by today\'s evolving design technologies, are conversant with the culture of the design community, and informed by relevant recent scholarship in the arts and humanities.

Students\' projects will be mentored by the programme\'s leading instructors and by invited lecturers. Students will be encouraged to pursue a curatorial or research topic leading to an actual exhibition and/or publication.

The Bartlett School of Architecture enjoys an exceptional international reputation and is currently ranked first in the world by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019. Students on this programme will be joining a community of academics and practitioners dedicated to better understanding and designing the built environment for the future, based in the cultural and creative epicentre of Bloomsbury, London.
