Master of Arts in Design Research, MA

Graduate York University
Decision Date: December 15, 2021

“The Master of Arts in Design Research (MA) is designed to prepare individuals to engage the research needs of contemporary design practice. Our program is distinguished by its emphasis on design research through practice and its interdisciplinary approach to graphic design. Our degrees are built around the application of design research methods: In the first semester we emphasize disciplinary inquiry that can be used to expand the possibilities of how we think about visual communication; and in the second semester we emphasize human-centered methods that attempt to address many of the vexing issues facing society today. Our students learn rigorous processes that question, analyze, and interpret the role of design in contemporary culture and society.

For practicing designers who want to energize their practice, our one year, 3-term program’s applied emphasis allows a student to immediately transfer what they learned into the workplace. The MA shares the same curriculum as the first year of the Master of Design (MDes) program but culminates in a 1-semester Major Research Project or Major Research Paper completed under the guidance and support of a supervisor. The MA program helps students develop the applied research expertise needed in today’s workforce and offers practical and attainable means of developing a strong, forward-thinking contemporary practice. Students sharpen their design skills, gain exposure to design research methods, and learn to articulate the value of design-based innovation”.

Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence, MMAI

Graduate York University
Decision Date: April 26, 2019

“The Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence (MMAI) program is designed to prepare individuals to seek and obtain meaningful employment in artificial intelligence (AI)-related management positions, whether in private, public or non-profit organizations. The program addresses a growing need in post-graduate management education for world-class training in the management of practical AI-related business solutions and technologies. The one-year, 3-term program emphasizes equally the teaching of business knowledge and management skills as well as artificial intelligence technologies. The program contains an experiential Artificial Intelligence consulting project (AICP) that spans terms 2 and 3. In term 2, students will define the projects with their clients, collect and analyze relevant qualitative and quantitative data, and develop management-driven Artificial Intelligence solutions to meet concrete business needs. In term 3 the student teams will implement their solutions, thus managing an entire Artificial Intelligence project from planning to implementation. During the AICP students will make extensive use of the newly developed Schulich Deloitte Visual Cognitive Analytics Lab. While teaching key management and technology skills is necessary for initial employment, the ultimate goal is to create critical thinkers and creative leaders in the management of AI.”
