Course content

MA Graphic Design has been designed to mirror the experience of working in a contemporary design company or the related creative industries.

  • A print, screen and brand-based brief which you produce in small teams
  • Contemporary theoretical discourse delivered as lectures and ideas workshops
  • Two briefs within your chosen and evolving specialist area
  • A final project, which is a body of work within a defined field of graphic design and communication
  • Resolve your project as a practice based work or a dissertation or a combination of both.
