Course content

Our MA Graphic Design course inspires designers to explore ways of developing understanding between co-communicators.

This course provides specific discipline-focused project work aimed at enabling you to take the right path towards your chosen career in industry or progress to further study at doctorate level. The course is designed to help you develop a keen intellectual understanding in the application of critical reasoning to your existing practice.

Students apply to this course predominantly from graphic design courses but are welcomed from a variety of disciplines. Whatever your background, you will be required to reflect on your worldview; the underlying assumptions and understanding that guides and constrains your practice, and to use this reflection as a starting point from which to further develop. Your practice can take many forms: it can be self-expressive, or socially orientated; print, screen-based or three-dimensional.

During this course, you can focus on an area of design, such as branding, experimental typography, publishing, and user-centered design, or on something more unconventional defined as part of your study.

This course provides opportunities to work in interdisciplinary ways as it sits alongside the courses of other disciplines. Many of the taught sessions such as the introduction to research methods and processes occur in these interdisciplinary groups. At times, you will be developing your project with your supervisor and other students on your course. This will require you to develop a theoretical framework, methodology and research methods that support your research focus.
