Official Master's Degree in Research in Art and Design


The Master of Research in Art and Design has as its aim the attainment of research skills: to think, rethink, argue and write about issues and problems of the theory and practice of art and design in a broad sense, highlighting performative practices, sound design and research and analysis in creative cuisine. It is not merely a theoretical master, neither a master purely in production or creation, but rather a mixed territory of artistic research. It combines three praxis: the artistic, the design and the discourse.

The master is structured around five major lines of research:

1. The comparative study of creative processes
2. Gustatory aesthetics, creative cuisine and food design
3. The sensory perception, the processes of meaning and social interaction (design of atmospheres, sound design and co-design)
4. Memory environments, construction of past and future
5. The design of knowledge, data visualisation and interfaces

Career options

The Master of Research in Art and Design is directed primarily to the practice of teaching and research, giving access to doctorate studies, especially in the fields of art and design. However, the theoretical-practical approach also allows for the application of the acquired knowledge on artistic practices and professional designers activity.

Teaching timetable

Classes begin in October and end in May, while the final project is extended until September.
