This Masters programme uses design as a lens to look at the world. It provides the critical skills necessary to reflect on design in everyday life, from objects to systems. It will draw on both theory and direct observation, using research and analysis to develop a personal point of view.

The first Master of Arts at a design school to offer both curating and writing, this is a course geared towards more fluid careers that might incorporate journalism, criticism and curating. It reflects a rapidly shifting landscape in which both media and museums are redefining themselves. With that in mind, it offers a portfolio of complementary skills that embraces traditional forms of writing and exhibition-making alongside online platforms, broadcasting and more experimental formats.

Having aspiring writers and curators embedded in a design school offers a proximity to working designers and their thought processes, as well as the opportunity to develop collaborations. The course is a crossroads for international writers, curators, editors, artists and designers, who share their insights and experience. Students will also benefit from affiliations with the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and the Design Museum in London, with the potential to gain an insider’s view of live projects.

Tutors: Justin McGuirk (writer and chief curator at the Design Museum, London), Alice Twemlow (writer and curator) and Nick Aikens (curator at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven)

Completing the Master Course at DAE will lead to the title Master in Design (MA-in design).
