The courses are already listed on UCAS and open to applications and prospectus text will appear on The Cass and London Metropolitan University pages very soon.
BA (Hons) Fashion is a pioneering new fashion degree in our School of Design looking at all aspects of what it takes to be a contemporary fashion designer, working alongside other related industry creatives such as fashion textiles, jewellery, fashion photography, styling etc. It emerges from the popular fashion studios within the Textiles and Jewellery courses at The Cass.
BA (Hons) Furniture and BA Product Design have grown out of our longstanding Furniture and Product courses. The new titles offer two distinct, specialist titles reflecting the growth in student interest in fine furniture making (at one end) and interactive, smart product (at the other). Recent studios have been developing diverse furniture and products which respond to a wider range of materials, contexts and markets. The School of Design will continue to offer its celebrated FDA Furniture course, offering a 'fast-track' award after two years for career changers.
BA (Hons) Interior Design and Decoration is a new addition to our Interiors area, extends the spectrum of interior practice from architectural (BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design), cultural/ commercial (BA (Hons) Interior Design) into retail/ residential through a hybrid approach to two & three-dimensional design for ornamentation for space & place. The course will benefit from our interiors tutors working alongside our related furniture, upholstery and textiles experts & facilities.
BA (Hons) Photography replaces and builds on the successful BA Fine Art photography course which has run for many years in the faculty. The course covers all aspects of photography, from traditional film and darkroom techniques to the digital age. We also train you to use a photography studio, providing tools and skills to explore different camera formats and produce enlargements
Extended Degrees/Foundation Years
Two new foundation years (4 year extended degrees) have been developed for students who would like to further foundation knowledge or preparatory courses in advance of taking a degree at The Cass. These new pathways enable students to develop a closer working knowledge, with further disciplinary skills and expertise within media or three-dimensional design subjects. Both join our continuing BA (Hons) Art and Design Extended Degree and BA (Hons) Architecture and Interior Design Extended Degree.
BA (Hons) Film, Media and Music Extended Degree secures successful progression to the film, animation and music technology courses in the faculty, throughout a preparatory foundation year.
BA (Hons) Fashion, Textiles, Jewellery, Product and Furniture Extended Degree enables students to further explore, specialist making and design experience during their preparatory foundation year, prior to progressing into the related BA courses in 3D Design disciplines.
