Course summary

The Professional Doctorate in Art and Design is designed to create a deep understanding of you and your place and perception of the world of Art and Design in all of its forms and representation.

To this end you need to have some basic experience working in the industry - we look for 2-5 years as being a good starting point.
You need this time to give you the basis for reflection. We ask you to reflect on certain areas of your life so far, areas such as how do you learn? What do you think constitutes knowledge?

We also give you the opportunity to try a range of different qualitative research methodology to find the best fit.

This Professional Doctorate is designed to help you make use of all you have learned in life up to this point. It helps you reflect on the past experiences professional and personal.

We take a very global view of design and so are equally happy for areas of design from China and South East Asia, India and South America to be the subject of your reflection and your research.


All modules are assessed through a variety of coursework assignments which may include essays, presentations, textual analysis and exercises, book reviews, case studies and other assignments.
