Original title in Czech: Design

Length of Study: 2 years

Academic year: 2017/2018

Profile of the branch:
The Design field of study guarantees two studios specializing in graphic design (Studio of Graphic Design 1, Studio of Graphic Design 2) and a studio specializing in product design (Studio of Product Design). The importance of this field of study is essential nowadays. A designer enters the process of designing the output (whatever that may be – a book, a website, a motorcycle, or a sink) much earlier than in the past. The conception of the studies in the Design field of study corresponds to contemporary requirements on the designer to be equipped both with excellent knowledge of available tools (especially of software), to be ready for life-long education, and to be an outstanding personality with a wide knowledge of culture and humanities. Emphasis is put during the course of the studies on the following areas: 1) continuous development of functional literacy in technologies and software essential for practical output in the field. (The Design field of study uses the workshop and intensive course formats which are not embodied in the curriculum on a fixed basis but rather extend the studio course. 2) Development of knowledge in art history, visual culture, and design. 3) Development of skills vital in contemporary design practices, such as independent seeking of tasks and work opportunities, organizational and presentation skills.
The Design field of study emphasizes the link between the school assignments and professional practices. This goal is achieved by cooperation with external subjects (companies, not-for-profit subjects or NGOs), and by the workshops and presentations held by notable designers.
Key learning outcomes:
The graduates of the MA program further deepen their competencies within their discipline, emphasizing the crossing of the “craft” aspect of their skills towards autonomous creative achievements characteristic for an original designer.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:
The graduate of the Design field of study is ideally a strong personality equipped with the potential to succeed in the practices of graphic or product design. She is also competent to professionally succeed in similar disciplines, such as polygraphy, advertising, and media. The studio-based format of training with a high share of tutorials systematically completed with short-term intensive courses and workshops lead by practicing professionals develops the competency in the students to actively seek job opportunities, make independent decisions, and boldly present their projects and achievements.
