The master's degree in design is a two-year programme that aims to provide professionals in the field of design with additional academic qualifications in the form of new knowledge and new approaches and theories in the expanding and progressive field of design.
The master's programme is intended for designers, architects, design teachers and others in design-related professions who have worked for a number of years in companies or organisations, as independent business-owners or as teachers in design schools and academies and who feel a need for additional professional qualifications. The programme is offered by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture and developed and managed by the Danish Centre for Design Research.
The programme is based on course sequences with intensive studies located at the School of Architecture. The approach varies between lectures, debate, reflection, workshops, symposiums, individual assignments, group assignments, and feedback. There is an emphasis on relating the course content to the participants' own practice-based experiences and work.
