Applications are invited for the Masters in Design History and Material Culture at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. The MA in Design History and Material Culture is a pioneering course that examines the history of design and material culture from the eighteenth century through to the present day, providing a unique forum for the study of objects, architecture and interiors within their social, historical and theoretical contexts. This taught course draws on the wide-ranging academic expertise of staff in the fields of the history of decorative arts and design, dress history, architectural history and material culture, and benefits from close relationships with a wide range of museums and cultural institutions. Seminars and lectures on campus at NCAD are complemented by a study trip to London and sessions at the National Museum of Ireland and various historic properties.
The course is offered on a full-time or part-time basis over one or two years respectively. For more information on this MA programme, Click here to see the course website or Click here to email the programme coordinator, Anna Moran.
