PCU's flagship Master of Arts in Future Design encourages experimentation with traditional and newly-emerging methods and practice. And engagement with businesses in the creative sector allows students to see the enterprise potential of their own original and innovative design visions across a wide range of media, techniques and technologies.
The relationship between designer and audience is a primary focus, and project work is conducted with a view to developing a portfolio for markets and sectors in the rapidly changing economic climate. Continuous discussion, debate and critique enable you to locate your approach within the larger social context, recognizing your capability to create positive social change through the power of design.
The experiential approach to learning is enhanced by the newly introduced Advanced Practice module. Students complete an internship, research project, university-based project or residency, enabling the development of solutions to real-world problems, accelerating personal and professional knowledge, skills, behaviours and the opportunity to increase professional connections.
Low residency: Students can expect 8-9 hours of class time a week, plus additional workshops & guest lectures. Further independent learning and group work of around 16-17 hours per week is expected.
Master’s study in Future Design culminates in a challenging, self-defined degree project that taps into each student's strengths, interests and experiences, resulting in a public showing of their work.
