Graduate profile: Amanda Valenzuela Pallamar

What was your favourite subject in the program to date and why?

I loved “Representing and Remembering place”. It was a very interesting subject that allowed me to look into the concept of “place” from so many different perspectives.

What attracted you to the Melbourne School of Design?

I wanted a Master that combined strong practical and theoretical approaches to heritage and doing research about the different Master programs the one that MSD had to offer was the most attractive one.

So far, what are the most valuable skills that you have learnt?

The most important skill the Master has given me has been to be critical, reflective and to understand the complexity of the concept of “heritage” today.
