Overview

For the Graphic Design master you formulate a research question on which you will work intensively during one year. A promoter and co-promoter will coach you intensively in your research, which will result in a practical work and a related thesis.

Your research question can be very concrete and professionally oriented or autonomous and self-reflective, either specialised or cross-discipline. It is important to develop your own conceptual framework and design strategy and to take an explicit standpoint relative to design practice.

Your practical work will be supported by a thesis that sharpens your research question. Alongside this, you can choose five master seminars. These seminars strengthen your critical and reflective research approach, and provide space for relating theoretical observations to your own research.
