The Master of Design (MDes) at Griffith explores 21st-century creative practices suited to current or emerging designers who wish to complement their existing skills with concepts, strategies, and technologies to solve complex problems in business, government and communities.
It allows students to advance their skills and knowledge of design context and processes in multiple areas, including experience design, design thinking, emerging design futures and business and professional practice.
These courses are complimented by a range of practical/making courses in visual communication, prototyping, still/moving images and interactive design.
The program allows a broad range of disciplines (design and non-design) to upskill and build upon contemporary practices relevant to all designers and equip them with the knowledge base to pursue a major design research project.
They will gain research and critical thinking skills, which will be deployed in a major design project in the program's second year.
Graduates will be prepared for practice-led work and/or design strategy and leadership in macro, micro and freelance scenarios.
