Course content

Graphic Design is made up of many different processes and inhabits a multitude of contexts. In the design of graphics for different commercial and artistic platforms the world of the graphic designer occupies both physical and digital arenas. Graphic Design is at the forefront of innovative and dynamic communication tools of the future.

Our MA in Graphic Design offers continuing or recent graduates from creative art and design subjects with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge, creative skills and employment prospects.Our course aims to encourage you to push the boundaries of graphic practice with the development of innovative and imaginative concepts and ideas relevant to the design of graphic products and artefacts. We will introduce you to a variety of platforms and a range of situations and contexts within which graphic design sits, enabling you to experiment, expand, progress and communicate your ideas through different forms and processes, both digital and print-based. Our practice-led modules facilitate opportunities for you to produce high quality portfolios often underpinned by industry focused trends and competition briefs.

Our specialist staff and research expertise in the School of Art, Design and Architecture brings students into contact with a wide range of academic staff, many of whom have industry experience. All of our staff are research active and are involved in the events of our research centres (G and the Centre for Sculptural Thinking). Students are welcome to participate in these wider research contexts as part of their studies with us at the University of Huddersfield. Research plays a relevant role in informing all our teaching and learning activities. Through research our staff remain up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, which means you develop knowledge and skills that are current and highly relevant.
