Bachelor of Design (Honours)

This is a prestigious one-year program in design practice, theory, and research for high achieving students who have completed a relevant undergraduate degree. You will undertake coursework, research, and practical training and carry out an independent studio project in your selected specialist area of study, working closely with a supervisor who will provide you with individual guidance and academic counseling. The course will extend your professional expertise but also offers a pathway to higher-level training in design research.

The collaborative design specialist area of study brings together design thinking, methods, and experiences from a range of design discipline specialist areas of study. This Honours specialist area of study responds to the emerging need for designers with multidisciplinary skill sets that can apply design processes that engage spatial, communication, experiential, and object-based solutions.

You will be able to traverse a range of employment options, including; mediated experiences and spatial design practices; products and packaging; and the increasing range of intersected real and virtual service processes (such as designing for banking, airlines, and other service delivery industries). You will develop advanced strategic and critical design thinking skills that respond to current user needs and industry challenges as well as the requisite research and academic acuity to pursue higher qualifications.
