Content

Students will explore complex social, ethical, environmental, political and technological issues as the focal points for design projects. The programme goes beyond a conception of medical, physical or psychological health to ask – instead – how might we reimagine ‘health’ and ‘wellbeing,’ and what will this mean to us in a world shaped by social, environmental and technological change? How can design help us to explore and consider these changes in the world, and how will it help us imagine our response? You will work beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and engage with specialist expertise from other domains, such as science, medicine, ecology, technology and politics, to create future visions of our health and wellbeing. As a result of this approach, our graduates will have a unique professional and transdisciplinary perspective that prepares them for a diverse range of creative opportunities and career destinations.
