GENERAL PERSPECTIVE OF THE COURSE
Our Master in Design focuses on the intellectual support that improves the understanding of design and its relationships with companies and the professional industry. Our course is exclusively online and considers three main fields of practice: communication design, interactive design and product design.
LSDM students will adopt a reflective, analytical and evaluative approach to design, reaching a greater understanding of the dynamic relationships between design, industry and the commercial sector. Our study plan assimilates reality, offering advanced, specialized, artistic, academic and entrepreneurial knowledge, which will allow students to pursue a consolidated career in the future.
Our teaching staff is composed of qualified, reputed and experienced teachers. Besides the academic level of Doctorate, they present consolidated professional careers, interconnecting the academic component to the labor market.
LSDM students are accompanied weekly through a Tutor Center composed of a team of tutors specialized in Design, with Masters and several years of proven experience. Our Tutor Center is also available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Goals and professional outputs
Our Master in Design is intended for students, professionals, artists or independent workers with ambition or a consolidated career in advertising (art directors, producers or designers), visual design, communication design, graphic design and interactive design (designers, producers, team leaders, art directors or creative directors).
Our candidates can apply to our Master in Design through one of these application options:
Through a Bachelor: having completed higher education (3 years) in the country of origin, verified by a legally issued certificate. This degree must belong to the area you have chosen or related.
Through professional experience: Relevant professional experience, which demonstrates your ability to complete a Master's Degree in Design. This is subject to approval by LSDM based on the affinity and relevance of the basic education, training and experience of student projects. The candidate will be asked to present a portfolio with his professional experience in Design.
Students with special needs can also apply. An analysis will be made between the student and the person in charge of supporting the student with respect to the specific needs of each case.
Older students can also apply. An analysis of the professional career will be carried out, as in the candidatures through professional experience.
Our Master in Design is 100% online, created to learn in accordance with the availability of our students and without a fixed schedule. That is, LSDM students can define when or where they can access our content. Only the final assignments and specific presentations will be scheduled on a fixed schedule, which will be communicated in due time to LSDM students.
In about 12 months, we will have completed our Master's Degree in Design accredited by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), one of the best specialty universities in the United Kingdom.
