    MA Design Writing Criticism As boundaries of design blur and interdisciplinarity becomes an essential direction in fostering innovation, design writing criticism will be key in enabling designers and producers to evaluate their own positions within a broader context of the social, political, economic, technological and global frameworks. MA Design Writing Criticism places an emphasis on research, process and critical thinking, and allows individual and personal positions to be explored through focused study in one particular area of design writing/criticism. Students on the programme bring with them an understanding of professional practices ranging from design/illustration/architectural studios, journalism and design history, teaching and social networking to trend forecasting. The course provides a critical space to examine and push forward: the role of writing in the studio, the impact of online discourses in design, the designer's own critical practice, how we interpret design and architectural history, and exploring potential of the materiality of language in visual ways.

    The degree is a professionally recognised qualification that leads to exemption from Part 1 of the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) examinations. It was led by tutors with diverse interests in art and design methods that inform an understanding of architecture as a pattern of thought and process.
