Master of Design

Graduate study at Whitehouse offers an immersive and inspiring opportunity to delve deep into a chosen design field and emerge with a fresh approach to creative practice. Each year full-time Master degree candidates benefit from a close working relationship with faculty who are practicing artists, designers and scholars themselves.

In addition to inspiring open dialogue and conceptually strong work, professors are committed to supporting an ambitious range of interests and approaches and to helping grad students develop deeply rewarding practices.


Master of Design

Throughout the 12 month program, students will develop existing knowledge and skills to achieve mastery in their chosen discipline, while encouraging interdisciplinary engagement, as well as being supported to undertake professional industry internships. The course is tailored to allow you to pursue your design project within an acute industry field, whether it’s men’s knitwear or textile print, film direction or magazine editorial. Design outcomes will be made in response to contemporary issues and contexts, promoting curiosity and creative confidence, leading to a major design project and exhibition or showcase.

Overall, we are looking for Masters students who are committed to pursuing intense, focused work in a specific discipline but who are open, inquisitive and ready to explore and be challenged.
