The Masters is delivered predominantly in a design studio environment, cultivating a culture of creativity, peer learning and transdisciplinary exploration. The core design modules are based on project work, problem solving and creativity, that centres on collaboration, human centred design and contemporary design processes. Students work across domains and at the borders of design and other disciplines.

The approach is based on real-world challenges linked with industry and community partners. Through this real-world approach students learn to identify opportunities and innovate solutions that have a positive impact on individuals, as well as public, health and wellbeing.

Foundation knowledge in design processes will build to specific expertise, as applied to the areas health and wellbeing. The curriculum focuses on experimentation, exploration to develop critical thinking, independent learning and an ability to bring new processes and thinking to this emergent global area.
