Overview

The need for spaces, buildings and interior products to create a positive environment for occupants is increasing. This offers an opportunity for a new generation of designers specialising in design for health and wellbeing. Solent’s MA Design for Health and Wellbeing also offers a platform for progression to employment in the design, healthcare consultancy or related fields.

The curriculum combines theory and practical elements, based on core areas of design, science and functionality to enhance immediate surroundings. The course also considers wellbeing in the broader context. This allows you to focus on designing buildings, solutions and spaces for occupants’ health in many environments. This can not only improve rehabilitation rates, but also improve productivity of workers.

Solent has a long history of delivering professionally-accredited built environment and architectural-related courses. You’ll learn from a team of lecturers with extensive knowledge of architecture, interior design and the built environment.
