Carve your own creative path

Design is about solving problems and embracing opportunity. Versatile designers need not be bound by a single specialty but can apply critical and creative thinking from one situation and apply it to another.

Take a unified approach to design. Develop strong design strategies and contextual understanding, applying your technical skills in the areas of your choice.

What is it like?

In the Integrated Design major you’ll select courses from two or more of the other seven majors in the Bachelor of Design with Honours and push your study beyond traditional design boundaries.

Choose courses from Concept Design, Fashion Design, Industrial Design, Photography, Spatial Design, Textile Design and Visual Communication Design to form a unique programme of study, in consultation with the programme leader.

Learn how to meet the needs of the real world as a versatile design problem-solver.

A good fit if you:

  • Want to learn to think critically about design, understanding different design methods and the context designers work within
  • Explore strategies of combining ideas from across disciplines
  • Craft your own creative expression


You’ll graduate ready to address issues and solve the design problems of today and tomorrow. You might be working independently or collaborating with other designers and people from other backgrounds. Either way, you’ll be able to integrate many different design methods and points of view.

You’ll be innovative and independent, able to think strategically about processes, products and experiences—skills that are highly sought-after in business, government and social enterprises as well as in conventional designer roles.

You could go on to pursue independent creative entrepreneurship, launching your own agency, fashion house, studio, product or service. 94% of our design graduates are employed or self-employed in relevant industries within six months of completing their degree.

You’ll also have the research skills and qualification to continue into postgraduate study, in a degree like the MFA in Design or the Master of Design at Massey.
