Why Should I Study Design at Lancaster?
Lancaster’s distinctive approach to design reflects a department that is at the cutting-edge of the field. Taught by global design experts, our courses move beyond the scope of traditional disciplines such as graphic or product design, to place design in a central role in shaping the world around us.
Design at Lancaster actively responds to rapid changes in technology, complex societal challenges and the pressing need for new ways of thinking about the world. We foreground the designer’s ability to engage with the most difficult of problems, bringing individual and collective creativity together to propose and test new ways forward.
Closely linked to ImaginationLancaster, an exploratory design-led research centre at Lancaster University, our team enables people and organisations to engage with academia in dynamic and creative ways, giving time and space to imagine and explore possible futures.
