    MA Design Expanded Practice This course is a radical post-disciplinary programme for practitioners who want to push the boundaries of what design can be and do. During this MA I worked with the tutors and classmates to transform my practice as a critical and social undertaking. The programme is structured around thematic areas of investigation (Studios) which situates the practitioner in a particular field of study and reference. My studio of choice was Communications and Experience. By challenging the role and norms of traditional design towards an emerging type of ‘advanced design’, unshackled from the history of specialisms and entrenched methods, I will became part of a community of practice. I was encouraged to actively contribute to a deep understanding of how design is set to address and affect change within contemporary society. Whatever the students background or previous degree we were expected you to examine our own practice on this course. For me this was be in a traditional field of design as it relates to graphic design, product design, print production, creative writing etc. Other fields I researched as part of my practice were social science, humanities, curating, transit, cities and business as it relates to design.
