The Master’s Programme in Design offered at University of Bergen  is an interdisciplinary study programme that allows design students to immerse themselves more deeply in a self-chosen topic.


Key facts

Your application to the Design programme offered at University of Bergen consists of a description of your future master’s project at the department. This consists of a more extensive, independent and experimental design project you will work with throughout the two years until your final exam.

An essential part of the MA curriculum is based on professional dialogue and discussions with other design students and tutors. You will also be introduced to new and stimulating professional meeting places, and you will often work across established professional boundaries.

Your daily life as an MA student consists of independent work and work in smaller groups, lectures, courses and workshops. The Department of Design admits a small group of master’s students every year, allowing for close contact between academic staff and students.

Periodically, you will present your project orally and in writing, and learn how to convincingly talk and write about your work. Exhibitions will be held in connection with semester assessments. Here you will also have the opportunity to develop your skills in visual and oral communication.
