Theoretical conditions for artefacts

Design Studies cover the study of the produced and the artificial, and of the manufacture, perception and effect of artefacts. They deal with the theoretical framework conditions of planning, designing and forming – and with the consequences of these. In the Design faculty and as part of design training, the disciplines of History of Art/Architecture/Design, 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.
