Design Studies (M.A.)
Design Studies cover the study of the produced and the artiﬁcial, and of the manufacture, perception and effect of artefacts. They consider the theoretical and practical framework conditions of planning, designing and forming – and the consequences of these conditions. Within the Design faculty and in the context of design training, the disciplines of History of Design and Architecture, Design Theory and Psychology of Design make up the Design Studies department. Philosophy, History of Philosophy, Aesthetics and Art Philosophy represent additional training course elements that form part of the teaching of theoretical design fundamentals.
This course in Design Studies – which is unique up to now in Germany – is aimed at graduates who already have a ﬁrst degree and who wish specialise further in their chosen discipline by engaging in additional area-speciﬁc study. Prospective candidates who already have an academic or design/practical qualiﬁcation may apply.
