About

The Advanced studies in design program at Monash University allows you to construct, with approval, an individual program of study from across interaction design, multimedia design and collaborative design. This enables you to tailor your unit choices while addressing the fundamental principles of advanced design practice and thinking.

Overview

The Advanced studies in design program at Monash University will inspire you to connect research and practice across the design disciplines, and to become a thoughtful design practitioner. You’ll broaden your knowledge of key design constructs, deepen your professional learning in design areas of interest, and advance your capacity as a design professional.

If you prefer a broadly applicable advanced design qualification you may choose, with the approval of your course coordinator, a selection of units from each level across the specialisation streams. This means you will refine your own studies by selecting from collaborative design, interaction design or multimedia design.

This enables you to tailor your unit choices while addressing the fundamental principles of advanced design practice and thinking. It will challenge you to connect research and practice across the design disciplines to become a highly thoughtful and engaged design practitioner. 

Throughout your studies you will build your learning by broadening your knowledge of key design constructs, deepening your professional learning in design areas of interest, and advancing your capacity as a design professional. The final semester of study provides the opportunity for you to pursue a major self-initiated project, or extend your skills by participating in a leading industry project.
