Masters of Design Program
A new Master of Design in Integrative Design Program at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design will have its first cohort of students starting in 2015. This cross-disciplinary, project-based program brings together a team of professionals, and designers to work on a variety of client-based, complex, open-ended challenges within a single big issue or "wicked" problem. We are excited to report that the inaugural cohort will be working with the umbrella issue of 21st century healthcare.
John Marshall is the Director of the Program and Joyce Lee is one of the program's University partners, in addition to key industry stakeholders, and various faculty and researchers from university schools including Biomedical Engineering, Ross School of Business, School of Public Health and more.
The Stamps MDes in Integrative Design aligns graduate education with the best in emerging professional practice, dissolving traditional professional and educational silos to prepare a new generation of nimble, empathic design practitioners, capable of working with diverse team members in a broad range of contexts and possible futures.
Stamps is seeking experienced applicants from a wide range of disciplines (product design, communication design, interaction design, etc.) who are interested in expanding their understanding of research, design methods, and cross-disciplinary collaborative design strategies as they apply to complex, ambiguous problems. Professionals in other fields who want to transition to a design-engaged practice will also be considered.
