The world is undergoing massive, accelerated change and communities, cultures and societies are facing various complex circumstances and systems, including disruptive technologies, aging populations, economic instability, conflict and displacement, and environmental degradation.
At The University of Edinburgh, our new MA Design for Change seeks to address the complex, real world challenges these communities face through design-led interventions driven by tactical, critical, strategic and creative approaches.
Our programme is ideal if you wish to broaden your existing specialist approaches with 21st century design skills that can be applied across intellectual and creative contexts including sociology, engineering, business, anthropology, geography, and design itself.
The professional knowledge, skills and abilities developed on this programme will prepare you for a rewarding career as a designer, strategist or consultant within a variety of private sector organisations including design studios, social enterprise, government or NGOs.
Why study with us?
- Develop your professional networks
Our keynote speaker series will give you direct access to industry thought leaders and academic experts who will provide their personal perspectives on seminal topics.
- A practical, hands-on approach
You will be taught through a series of Design Labs which will provide thematic focus to open project briefs, encouraging independent interpretation in the design studio. Within the labs, you will make innovative use of design research methods, produce and prototype design-led insights and devise future propositions for design-led interventions.
