RMIT’s School of Media and Communication is introducing a new postgraduate program delivered entirely online and open to applicants worldwide.
The Master of Design Futures (MDF) is a new accelerated program for experienced designers wanting to hone their leadership and strategic skills through design.
The program is global in outlook, targeted at industry professionals who want to explore meaningful and valuable domains for design practice.
Students will learn ways to employ their creativity in a strategic context, whilst working in a contemporary collaborative environment.
The program offers a range of core courses as well as electives and a major project.
Future MDF students will have the unique ability to network globally and extend their professional practice, irrespective of their geographical location.
The program is intended for online delivery through an RMIT platform, with the opportunity to complete the program in one year (full time) or over two years (part time).
Program Manager Jeremy Yuille said the introduction of the new Master program is a great way to provide designers with the knowledge and networks needed to reinvigorate their career paths.
“The program will enable students to develop the capacity to articulate, frame and deliver the value that design brings to broader contexts of business, government and society,” he said
“With RMIT recently ranked the top Australian university within the art and design discipline, it is a great time for us to be implementing a forward thinking, global design program.
“The Master of Design Futures is a daring, timely and innovative offering to graduate design education.”
