So, I want to further my studies in design. I want to learn methods in which design can change the world through research, co-design, engagement, development and sustainability in the broadest sense. These constraints have somewhat helped narrow down my search for the most appropriate master programme. However, they are represented throughout a variety of programmes in different forms and applied in different ways. This has led to a complex list of programmes including but not limited to design ethnography, service design, design strategy, product design and design development.
The choice becomes even more complex when I add my career goals of working on projects like Phillips Design Probes that explore future conceptual products, services and interactions whilst also being able to work in social innovation and social enterprise to design better policy and products for the other 90%.
I’m not sure if its possible to find a masters programme that will allow me to achieve ALL these goals but I will try my best to find it. However, if you know of anything that sounds like it would tick some of my boxes I would love to hear from you, either way I will try to document my search in case others find themselves in a similar situation.
