Study type Taught


MA Design at the University of Lincoln is a studio practice-based, multi-disciplinary programme that puts your self-initiated creative project at its heart. The taught elements are geared towards consolidating and expanding your creative thinking, planning, and design execution. It aims to strengthen your reflective creative practice via explorations of the creative process itself, related to future-facing practical design applications in your chosen specialism.

By asking you to reflect on the bridge between design theory and practice, MA Design aims to enhance your professional development via improved skills in research, devising, and managing particular projects, thinking about end users, and building design communication skills.

MA Design is centred around the belief that the future of the design professions lies in working across traditional design specialisms, being more effective in the 'gig economy', and building a career relevant to the concrete realities of the new cultural economy. The programme offers insights into a broad range of conceptual debates to help contextualise your creative project and these debates are integrated with practical inquiries to help with the actual making needed in the studio and workshop.

Students have access to a wide range of creative technologies and dedicated workspaces, a wide network of creative practitioners from across the Lincoln School of Design, staff working in other disciplines within the University, and creative industry contacts - all of which can help you develop your particular creative project.
