Course content

Our MA Visual Communication programme encourages the development of an individual and distinctive contemporary graphics practice through considered engagement with current contexts, audiences and outputs, giving you influence in society and helping you shape our way of living and our understanding of the world.

This programme brings together design-led and research-driven approaches to an increasingly important practice and field of study. We take a critically informed and widely experimental approach to the production, form and circulation of ‘message’.

At your disposal are superbly resourced workshops and studios, allowing you to experiment with a range of techniques and a combination of processes, from letterpress, laser cutting, animation, photography and screen printing, to the latest software suites.

This environment encourages you to explore the ever-changing technological landscape and time-tested processes of print and image generation that are essential to all types of visual communication.
