The subject areas covered at WSD from further education to doctorate include Contemporary Art and Design, Landscape Architecture and Garden Design, as well as Professional Floristry. Through integrating the theories and practices of these courses WSD ensures a holistic understanding of the role of art and design in the contemporary world.
