Course content

Develop your creative practice within the fields of contemporary graphic and communication design. This course will encourage you to challenge the established conventions of the creative, communicative disciplines to enhance your own ideas and concepts.

You will examine this field of study by integrating theory and practice. Each module will give you the opportunity to explore research-led practice at an advanced level. The Independence Project module will allow you to focus on your area of specialism, helping you to develop your problem-solving skills.

You will investigate a range of concerns through a variety of practices, methodologies and media. You will also explore the relationship between traditional forms of communication and the emerging, evolving digital practices employed by contemporary practitioners in the field.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to share and develop ideas by working alongside artists and designers from this course and from other creative disciplines within the School of Art, Architecture & Design.
