Course info


The MA History of Design and Material Culture examines objects and images from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, exploring how things are created and how they circulate through global cultures.

There is a focus on everyday life as critical interpretation through a lens of current debates about materiality and visuality, affect and agency, gender and identity, memory and history, the post human and the Anthropocene, and the de-colonisation of design history.

Since its inception in the late 1990s, the MA has maintained a high international reputation and contributes to shaping the future of design history and material culture in the university and museum sectors.

The course has an excellent track record in helping students to pursue careers in related areas as well as further study.
