Whether you want to get ahead in your career faster, or improve your knowledge, a Monash postgraduate degree can give you a distinct advantage.
The Master of Design enables designers to advance their professional practice by focusing in-depth on projects for an extended period; an opportunity not often available to designers working in a commercial setting. With the support of academic staff, students can develop a self-directed project. They gain an expert understanding of the design process as they plan and investigate concepts, deliver a design outcome and evaluate their response to the brief.
Based on their experience, students choose one of the following streams for the duration of the degree:
- Industrial Design: for designers with experience in industrial and product design
- Visual Communication: for designers with a background in visual communication, communication design, graphic design
- Interior Architecture: for graduates of interior architecture, architecture or interior design
- Multimedia Design: for professionals in digital design, multimedia design, video and film production
- Multidisciplinary Design: for designers who draw on various disciplines
Graduates of the Master of Design will have highly developed capabilities, placing them at the forefront of their area of design practice. This degree gives designers the chance to independently explore design concepts over three semesters while undertaking specialised coursework units and electives. By completing a self-directed major project, graduates develop the design skills and practical knowledge to perform at an advanced level.
