MA Graphic Communication Design pursues a direct and in-depth connection between the applied arts tradition of graphic design and a critical and creative approach to communication. As a subject of study, graphic communication design cultivates a considered stance towards visual and other media. This stance is activated as an approach to challenging and reconfiguring culture. The goal of this course is to engage the tools of graphic design in experimentation with the basic forms by which knowledge is constituted and mobilised.
On this course, you will simultaneously develop critical positions, through and about graphic communication design and claim new forms through which they can be enacted and deployed. Rather than presuming narrow definitions of graphic or communication design, the course aims to provide you with the tools to situate and develop your individual practice in active dialogue with an expanded and evolving field.
MA Graphic Communication Design, along with BA Graphic Communication Design and a small group of PhD students, is part of the Graphic Communication Design programme. In addition to sharing an academic team and studio spaces, the programme offers a range of extracurricular events, lectures, live briefs and other activities.
