The Design degree combines theory and practice in this subject, which is central to society where most of what we see, use, or have contact with, has been designed. Practical studies include opportunities in printed and constructed textiles, studio and industrial ceramics, computer aided design and manufacture, objects for the interior, product design, silversmithing and jewellery. During this degree you will follow a contemporary curriculum where practical skills are underpinned by the critical, contextual, historical, conceptual and ethical dimensions of art and design. The degree offers graduates a diverse range of career pathways including designer/makers and related employment in buying, marketing, education and art therapy. Some of our recent graduates have gained employment as resident artist/designers within the community and public arts and working as curators.
