Course summary

Lancaster’s distinctive approach to design reflects a department that is at the cutting-edge of the field. The degree is taught by global design experts, and it moves beyond the limited scope of traditional disciplines such as graphic or product design. Instead you will develop the skills to solve complex cultural and social problems by combining design thinking with innovation, technology, business and research. This will equip you for a range of exciting careers in new and emerging industries.

  • The course is structured around four aspects of design: materials, people, products and places. They allow you to develop vital problem-finding and problem-solving abilities.
  • History, theory and intellectual content are combined with creative design practice and design management.
  • You will develop practical skills in prototyping and presentation in our purpose-built design studios and workshop.
  • Through authentic projects and live briefs, including a group consultancy project, you’ll gain real world experience and prepare yourself for your future career.
  • Guest speakers and external organisations provide insight into design and related industries, giving you the opportunity to build professional contacts and gain work experience during your degree.

You can find out more about our facilities, research and the work experience we offer on our departmental website.

Careers

Graduates will be well prepared to respond creatively to tomorrow’s fast moving business environment through the development of future visions for innovative products and services. Our degree addresses the need for graduates that are capable of transcending the traditional boundaries of design and possess the requisite knowledge, skills and creative experience to develop novel interactions between people, products, virtual and physical environments.

Graduates from the scheme will have a number of potential career avenues including: concept designer, user experience designer, design researcher, design ethnographer, interaction designer, graphic designer, product designer, service designer, design developer or design manager. You will also build-up numerous transferrable skills, which can be applied to a variety of creative practices and careers.

Ultimately, the Design Interactions course at Lancaster will provide students with the necessary skills and experience to work in the fast-paced, changing, creative and digital industries.
