The critical study of design and fashion

Learn about how design shapes our world

Interiors, fashion, artefacts, graphics and digital design define affect nearly every area of our lives. Design Cultures takes a Humanities perspective and explores the history and theory of design in connection with contemporary issues such as identity, ecology and inclusion. Other programmes train students on how to design objects. This programme will train you on how to interpret, reflect and write about design.

This programme raises the following questions: What makes a design iconic? How is design used to construct national identity? How can we approach design from a post-colonial, ecological and feminist perspective? How do designers think? Why does the very same object mean different things to different users?

Design Cultures is one of the tracks of the master's programme in Arts & Culture. Find more information about the other tracks here.
