“Are you looking to progress your career or explore your interest in the fascinating field of design history? This exciting programme supports you in developing a deep understanding of a particular era or field of research, such as ceramics, clothing, furniture, with access to specialist research archives and expert staff.”
In the heritage, collections and antique sector, there is a need for object based learning and knowledge.
This fascinating programme offers you the opportunity to study design history – providing you with an essential body of knowledge to explore your interests and, potentially, support your career in collections and objects in auction houses, curation, heritage properties, museums and antique institutions.
The programme comprises advanced research methodologies and application and a work-related learning project which could include experience in an external institution or a focus on the School’s costume or design study archives.
The programme covers: materials and techniques of design; taxonomy; exhibition, conservation and handling collections.
The format of the programme is lectures, seminars, tutorials and self-directed study.
On this programme, you will also benefit from small focused group workshops, access to expert staff and to the School’s Design Study Archive and Costume Archive.
Many of the great northern country houses, as well as nationally renowned museums, are located within the region which means we are in a unique geographical position to offer access to important collections outside London.
