Overview

Course content and objectives

The practical experience of design gained by participants in previous study semesters and in professional practice provides the basis for an approach to design now primarily based on research and analysis.

The core of the Design Research program from Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, communicated using different teaching methods with the participation of the three aforementioned partner institutions, relies on three thematic building blocks: Design as research – analysis of the synthesizing practices; design as projection – anticipation and intervention strategies; design in the world – impact and application. The participants gain sound scientific knowledge and competences on the basis of tasks that are both practice-oriented and forward-looking. The successfully completed MSc. program qualifies graduates to study for a doctorate. Moreover, the program fosters personal growth and as such paves the way for a meaningful level of social engagement. The MSc. program COOP Design Research opens up professional perspectives in the fields of research and teaching, design and cultural studies, and curatorial practice.

The program is conducted at Gropius’ Bauhaus in Dessau. Some lectures take place at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin.
