MA spots are in great demand
288 have applied for a spot in Design School Kolding’s MA programme, which offers a cross-disciplinary specialisation in either People, Planet or Play. The number has gone up from 244 last year, which means there has been an 18 per cent increase. This pleases Prorector Lone Dalsgaard André.
- We are happy to see an increase in the number of applicants to our MA programme. We’re particularly pleased to see an increase in the number of bachelors coming from university colleges. It promises well for the future that so many types of bachelors want to explore their core competences within our thematic MA programme, says Lone Dalsgaard André.
Classic design combined with cross-disciplinary specialities
The new MA programme, which offers a cross-disciplinary specialisation in either Design for People, Design for Planet or Design for Play, was launched in 2018. The goal was to an even larger extent, to educate designers with in-depth professional knowledge and broad skills who can collaborate across disciplines. The programme offers professional sparring and supervision within the professional clusters: Fashion Design, Textile Design, Industrial Design, Communication Design or Accessory Design.
- The new structure will enable us, to an even larger extent, to educate designers with in-depth professional knowledge and broad skills who can collaborate across disciplines. Designers who are able to come up with new solutions to complex problems that relate to people and climate. People, Planet and Play are strategic focal areas to which we dedicate a great deal of our teaching as well as research and development work. It is only natural that students engage in the challenges that face our societies, says Eva Kappel, Head of Education at Design School Kolding.
Design to the people
The Design for People programme has the most applicants with 120 out of 288. Head of programme, Anne Corlin, says:
- We address many current societal challenges; problems that will most likely increase in the future. So the relevance of the programme, I believe, is appealing to many.
