This programme brings together analysis of contemporary design and the best in contemporary design practice. Our students explore the fast-changing world of design and the design industries and produce the sort of work those industries need. What is more, they look to the future of design and the emerging practices, technologies and businesses. Students graduate with critical thinking skills, a portfolio of work and competencies in a range of contemporary design production techniques and tools.

Programme structure

With a focus on design for mobile and digital networked media this pathway brings practical design work together with the latest thinking about digital media, digital cities, remix and mobile cultures.

An emphasis on research ensures your work is grounded in the key current critical debates within the communication design discipline. This also ensures your designs and design practices have relevance, impact and power in a distributed media space.

One such debate is the role of the designer in a remix culture where source material everywhere means anyone can and does design, where your carefully produced work can be remixed, reused, re-contextualised or reworked. How do you design when you no longer have control?

Through lectures, practical workshops and seminars, WSAmacd takes on these big questions and equips you with the practical and theoretical skills to deal with them.

By the end of the course you will have completed a portfolio of creative work, developed your professional skills and gained the analytical and design production competences to secure employment in the media and design industries, start your own business, or pursue further research.
