Course content

Our distinctive Graphic Design MA is an enriching and advanced programme for both graphic designers looking to push their practice in ambitious new directions and creatives wanting to move into the field.

You will be encouraged to explore social, political and environmental issues in your work and to consider the crucial role of design in relation to the most pressing debates in contemporary society.

At the heart of graphic design is communication and story-telling, and this programme is rooted in defining and challenging the boundaries of the practice.

We will support you in discovering fresh new ways of working and in expanding your creative ideas and research interests – you will be solving real-world design problems at a high level.
