Course content

MA Design at UCA Rochester promotes joined-up thinking as an approach to design, so that the relationship between artefacts, environments and the systems and organisations in which they operate can be re-examined.

The course is underpinned by a core taught programme that helps you to develop a wide range of skills and strategies, including research into new technologies, future forecasting and design methodologies.

The course comprises a framework that provides for a structured examination of themed issues as well as opportunities for the development of other individual research interests. Currently, project proposals are invited in one of four themed study groups that reflect current research on the course: Architectural and interior Design, Digital Design, Product Design and Design Crafts.

Key study topics include:

  • Development of a personal project, supported by a core programme of lectures and seminars.
  • Your project could be specialist or interdisciplinary and will extend the boundaries of design through an exploration of methods, techniques, ideas and themes.
  • You complete and publish your final project.
  • On the course you will work with practising professionals to identify future audiences for your ideas and prepare for the next stage of your career.
