- Rooted and actively engaged in the ecology, ethics and politics of design, Emily Carr University’s MDes programs are for designers who take risks, think unconventionally, seek to foster change, and actively contribute to local and global cultural ecologies.
- The Design programs are built on critical, practice-based creative research. Throughout your time at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, faculty, staff and peers will contribute to your professional development by mentoring, challenging and supporting you as you work to uncover, cultivate and refine your thesis project, a creative product comprising both a practical and written component. With the assistant and supervision of a faculty mentor, your thesis project will be fostered in-studio classes and research seminars by skilled faculty with a diverse range of design expertise.
