Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

This course draws on skills and knowledge learnt in the first year of the Design Studies program.

Before taking this course, you must first successfully complete all year one courses of the Design Studies program.


Course Description

You will select and research a particular theoretical construct, model or idea, and investigate how this informs practices and approaches within the design discipline of interior design. Presentations will form part of a seminar series where you will have the opportunity to learn from the research and findings of your peers. 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

The course supports your development in the following Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Critically review, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge from the history of design, and adapt this knowledge to diverse social, ethical and cultural contexts.
  • Critically review, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge of diverse design theories, concepts and approaches, and adapt this knowledge to local and international contexts.
  • Develop responsibility and accountability for development of a personal design practice that demonstrates an original, ethical, innovative and professional approach to design.


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  1. analyse the formal attributes of real-world outcomes in the domain of interior design
  2. analyse the historical and theoretical attributes of a real-world outcome in the domain of interior design
  3. employ appropriate academic writing skills
  4. identify significant trends in the local, regional and international domain of interior design
  5. analyse a real-world outcome in the domain of interior design for its historical and theoretical attributes
