About

The two-year Master of Design program at Concordia University Montréal provides an opportunity for students to broaden their theoretical knowledge of design and focus on innovative research in the areas of visual communication, the built environment, interaction design and design studies.

Overview

Program Details

The Design program at Concordia University Montréal offers a stimulating and creative environment in which students are encouraged to explore conceptual and theoretical issues through a project-based or academic research.

In contrast to traditional design education in which disciplines such as graphic or industrial design are segmented and separated, the program identifies and synthesizes connections between the visual, the built, and the interactive so that integrated, experimental and collaborative aspects of design practice emerge. Most importantly, the program distinguishes itself by putting the emphasis on issues that deal with sustainability (ecological, social, and economic) as a strategy and a philosophy fundamental for the future of design theory and practice. The program also recognizes the importance of approaching design through sensorial as well as cognitive investigation.
