User Experience & Service Design
UX and Service Design is a unique, research-focused Masters bringing together three of design's emerging specialisms - UX, Service Design, and Design Thinking – as part of a single educational experience.
The course responds to continuing changes in contemporary design practice by foregrounding human experience and social research approaches.
Teaching takes place over three semesters. Semester one focuses on principles and techniques, semester two sees students specialise, and in semester three students work on an individual, self-directed project.
There is a strong emphasis on group work and collaboration throughout. By connecting to external organisations, companies, and wider stakeholders, it is expected that you will expand horizons and push boundaries, exploring how design may contribute to real change in the areas of technology, leisure, and daily life.
MA UX and Service Design offers you a creative context in which to advance your existing knowledge and a space to develop new forms of practice based on a 'reimagining' of the possible.
