The COOP Design Research Master of Science is a teaching cooperative by Anhalt University of Applied Sciences and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation in cooperation with Humboldt University Berlin.

The COOP Design Research program offers an overview of the diversity of academic scholarship in the field and contributes to strengthening a research practice by the means provided by design.

The program strives to integrate design and research as a transdisciplinary field at the crossroads of material studies, social sciences, design anthropology, cultural studies, technology studies, architecture and design history, and theory.

The program focuses on developing the student's understanding of a theoretical framework as a forum for the analysis and discussion of epistemological concepts and practical knowledge.

It deals with the practical approach to preparing a research project with the necessary tools, techniques, software applications and work procedures.

The degree opens professional perspectives in the fields of research and teaching of design, cultural studies, as well as curatorial practice.

It can be conceived as either a preparatory step towards doctoral studies or as theoretical enrichment for applied design research and practice. Moreover, the program fosters international cultural exchange and social engagement.
