Course content

This programme aims to develop a specialist approach to graphic design and visualisation through combining traditional and contemporary approaches in the field.

It will provide the student with opportunities to develop a personalised visual language through visual thinking, expressed in physical and virtual means combining traditional and contemporary media. Theory and practice are intertwined and students express their ideas through the production of written assignments and the production of artefacts, both aligned with their specialist area of interest.

The programme comprises six modules offering a range of learning experiences and staff access that allows for: project proposal development; situating practice in a wider context; research methodologies; experimentation with materials, processes and techniques; developing entrepreneurial skills; all realised through a final project phase.

The combination of directed study, technical support and independent learning enables the culmination of all this to be tailored towards supporting future career aspirations.

Careers and further study

Our graduates work in a range of areas including higher education, television, illustration agencies and manufacturing industries.
