Master of Design Research

Provided by
Monash University

Run since 2002


The Master of Design is an 87.5per cent research degree. Candidates develop a studio research proposal that results in a body of design works with accompanying written and visual documentation. The documentation is a commentary that outlines the development of the project and its conclusion, and provides a critical context within which the work may be viewed and assessed.

The design works are new works that demonstrate a conclusion to the research at the masters level. Works completed for other purposes, or before the candidacy, are not permitted for inclusion in the exhibition. Unless site specific, the faculty requires masters examination exhibitions to be conducted on-campus at either the Caulfield or Gippsland campuses.

Disciplines offered include:

* design
* graphic design/visual communication
* industrial design
* interior architecture
* multimedia/multimedia design.
