Module overview

This module will advance your knowledge and critical understanding of current debates that inform theoretical and practical approaches to design and their applicability in the creative industries. You will be encouraged to think, discuss and write critically at an advanced level about a variety of issues concerning design and the creative industries, including: collaborative and environmental practices, material and economic sustainability, consumption, social enterprise, and corporate social responsibility.

Additionally, it will deepen your awareness and critical understanding of a range of ethical issues and sensitivities associated with critical and cultural matters of difference (such as gender, social class, ethnicity, and age) and their relevance to design practice, design communication and design consumption. Finally the module will encourage students to reflect upon the impact of relevant theories and practices in local and global contexts.
