The V&A/RCA History of Design programme is internationally known for our path-breaking teaching and research in the history of design and material culture. As jointly offered by two world-leading centres for scholarship and creativity, we explore cultural, social, economic, political and technological history through designed artefacts and our interactions with them. Students work closely with collections and curatorial expertise within the V&A, and as part of the creative community of the RCA.
