Integrated study model
In the first two semesters, the subject design theory will teach you experimentally and methodologically the basics of perception and design. Here, you'll easily find your strengths that will serve as orientation for your subsequent focus choice. This is what we understand of the motto "learning by doing" - we are convinced that one's creativity can best be recognized and shaped in the practical design work!
Your focus choice is accompanied by project courses, for example these are exercises in the workshops and computer labs. Here all methodological, conceptual and creative skills are integrated into the design process of an actual project. The themes of the project courses are clearly associated with the four major fields of study. However, here come the benefits of our "integrated" study model into play: students from different areas work together in order to find new solution paths. So media designers come together with communication and product designers, for example, to make an exhibition. Of course our very high experienced design teachers are available to advise you. Our path offers students the opportunity to find new, innovative solutions for specific tasks. "True" project collaborations with industry partners alternate with theoretical problems.
You also get the chance to look beyond the horizons Münster: In addition to international contacts in the teaching, the Faculty of Design also has a wide network of partner universities, where you can gain valuable experience abroad for one semester.
The bachelor program at the Faculty of Design finishes up with an independent or collaborative thesis project that will be presented to the public at the graduate exhibition "Parcours". After graduation, a lot of doors stand open for our graduates! Your bachelor's degree qualifies you in a variety of ways for the professional life as in design offices, design departments of companies or as freelancer. In many cases it's also helpful and useful to continue studying a master program. In Münster we offer the master program "Information and Communication", where experts in teaching will advise you individually in finding your own way. Our extensive network of contacts to graduates of the Faculty of Design as well as cooperation partners is often of great use when starting into professional life .
