Master of Design
Emily Carr University’s Master of Design (MDes) will challenge you to examine and explore the dynamic and ever-changing nature of design. Based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the MDes is a two-year, full-time, research-oriented, interdisciplinary degree for creative professionals at the forefront of design. As a graduate, you will inspire new design practice and be poised to take leadership roles across a diverse range of established and emerging professions.

Re: Think
Expand your understanding of design in its contemporary and future contexts. Drawing upon your knowledge and experience, you will push the boundaries and purposes of design by integrating design research methodologies within theoretical and experimental frameworks. Our approach to critical making actively integrates research and practice.

Re: New
The program offers opportunities to engage in independent and collaborative advanced-level research, studio practice, prototyping, co-creation methods, and critical studies. While the MDes is focused on studio practice, you will be asked to develop a rigorous critical framework in order to synthesize research, theory, and practice, and to recognize and develop new areas of design practice.

Re: Design
As an MDes candidate, you will have the opportunity to situate your own research within a range of established and emerging design fields including Health Design, Recreation Design, Soft Product Design, Communication Design, Product Design, Industrial Design, Sustainable Design, and Service Systems Design.
