Study type Taught


The MA in Design History & Material Culture (DHMC) is about objects, spaces and systems: things you might sit on, drink from or wear; things you might cherish, throw away or never notice; things for special occasions and things you use every day; things made by machine, things made by hand and things never made; spaces you might visit, inhabit or travel through; ideas about things, things about ideas.

Through seminars and guided research, students are equipped with skills to enable them to conduct research, analyse and write about the material world in its various historical and contemporary contexts.
