Course content

The MA Graphic Design has a distinct focus on design research and enterprise and is driven by your own creative practice.

Throughout this programme, we actively encourage you to test, adapt and judge the success of your practice - and continuously relate this to a developing theoretical and conceptual framework. This helps you engage in a critical design practice that will challenge and enhance your understandsing of the subject.

You will be taught by experienced staff and have the opportunity to hear from visiting professionals and design researchers throughout your studies. During the programme you will engage with commercially oriented design briefs as well as self-negotiated projects.

Specific modules encourage you to explore the potential to innovate and achieve impact with your work. Staff will help you to tailor your learning in a way that is relevant for you and your career aspirations.
