Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

This programme is aimed at people who wish to work in the area of interior and furniture design. It has strong links with business and manufacturing industries and allows students to specialise in either interior or furniture design in their third year. The programme is based on three areas of study - Design Fundamentals, Design Communications and Critical Theory.

In Design Fundamentals, students engage in a fundamental and developmental study of design practice through a wide variety of studio projects.

The Design Communications strand focuses on developing the student’s visualising skills and subjects include Computer Aided Design (CAD), Drawing and Design Realisation.

Through Critical Theory the key issues in the history and theory of design are covered.

Students are expected to create an integrated design solution which is original, creative and imaginative and displays a high level of technical skill in the final presentation. Students also present a 10,000 word dissertation on an approved topic in design.
