The MA 3D Design is aimed at both recently qualified and experienced practitioners in a three-dimensional design field such as Product or Industrial Design, Furniture Design, Interior Design, Architecture or similar, who wish to further their education through a Practice Based Masters. Candidates would normally be expected to come to the MA with a research interest which might form a starting point for their major project.
The programme is run by the Dublin School of Creative Arts at DIT and offers a unique opportunity for focussed study in an interdisciplinary environment that mixes studio practice with intellectual, theoretical and historical inquiry.
The programme is one of five delivered through the Creative Arts Masters Platform. Students on the MA 3D Design programme will join those on the other studio-based programmes in Interior Design, Visual Communications, and Fine Art, and those on the Contemporary Visual Culture programme, where students study the theory and criticism of contemporary visual culture or the history of art and design. The Platform allows specialisation within a dynamic mix of practical and critical disciplines, placing particular emphasis upon practice engaged with critical and historical debate.
