Why this course?

The Lincoln School of Design at the University of Lincoln offers students the creative freedom to explore their chosen discipline, together with the opportunity to hone their creative and professional practice.

Students can work alongside academics and practitioners in a dynamic and interdisciplinary studio environment. The interdisciplinary nature of the course enables students to gain a better understanding of other design disciplines and to apply innovative design philosophies to their own particular practice.

There is flexibility to tailor your learning in a way that is relevant to you and your career aspirations. Students join a community of creative practitioners and researchers, with opportunities to collaborate with fellow designers and build a network of industry contacts.

Design is a very broad subject however, there are certain key themes which run throughout all the different areas of practice and the module structure of MA Design allows students to explore their own particular discipline at a deeper level.

The six modules are as follows:

  • Research for Design
  • Design: Purpose & User
  • Critical Review of Current Practices
  • Design Theory & Making
  • Design Proposal
  • Final Major Project

In all Modules, MA Design is a studio-based programme of practice, study, and research. Modes of study within the programme include lectures by staff and visiting practitioners, seminars (staff and student-led), studio practice sessions, studio critiques and presentations, interim exhibitions and reviews, visits, workshops, and skills training sessions.
