Overview

Bachelor of Design

At Monash, it creates the designers the world needs – inventive, purposeful and visionary.

Being a design professional is a creative and varied career with endless opportunities to work with different clients and projects and at Monash you will receive a design education that will enable you to make a sustainable difference and have impact.

You apply for the Bachelor of Design, and then choose your specialisation - Communication, Industrial or Spatial after first semester, or you can change to Collaborative Design after second year.

The four specialisations build a high level of design expertise and you will graduate with a degree in your specialisation. All the design degrees are recognised by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA).

With no folio entrance requirement, this degree is open to anyone who is curious and passionate to make a difference and you will learn the technical capabilities and strategic skills to be a successful designer.

Through the interdisciplinary studio-based course you will gain the knowledge, skills and capability to create imaginative and effective solutions and design new possibilities.

You will be able to work across multiple scales from local to global design challenges. The graduates are solving health problems, transportation issues, saving marine reefs and making the world more inclusive and liveable for everyone.

The Bachelor of Design is an integrated degree where all students have a common first semester, which includes a foundation studio and drawing unit. 

There is also a Theory of Design sequence of study and a professional practice unit in final semester to prepare you for your career.

The degree also includes electives in most semesters where you can choose from an extensive range of design subjects that develop and enhance the skills and capabilities of designers. 

These include typography, animation, image making, computer aided design, advertising, 3D modelling, creative coding, mobility design, sensory design, digital font illustration, film and photography and many more. 

You can also venture into other areas of artistic practice like sculpture, painting, photography, or glass blowing, or you can go further afield with electives like a language or accounting, that are offered by other Monash faculties.

After the common first semester you select from the following specialisations:

Communication Design
Become a bold, imaginative communication designer who shapes the visual language of contemporary society through creative visual storytelling.

Industrial Design
Create beautiful, functional objects by combining your knowledge of materials, manufacturing and human-centred design with innovation and aesthetics.

Spatial Design
Design new experiences that set moods, communicate ideas and address social problems through the innovative use of space, lighting and objects.

Or you can change after second year and select:

Collaborative Design
Bringing together elements from Communication Design, Industrial Design and Spatial Design this specialisation enables you to forge new career possibilities in emerging fields of design
