Course content

Carve your path in a rapidly-changing media world, where creating and communicating meaningful and effective ideas is paramount. You’ll benefit from frequent industry contact and expert tutors, preparing you for a range of careers in communication design.

Develop an individual critical voice in communication design with this transformative, 45-week studio-based course. You’ll keep your learning current by engaging with projects and insights supplied by leading global ‘provocateurs’, including writers, scientists, artists, curators and designers. You’ll also look into the political, cultural and ethical contexts facing modern design and culture. This creates a rich space for interdisciplinary collaboration, and through our international, multi-disciplinary cohort of students, leads to new connections and ideas at the boundaries between research and creative practice.
