The job of the graduate in Design – Visual Communication consists of bringing images, texts and concepts to life, turning them around and communicating them in a fresh way to a wide audience.

By examining how image and text work together, you will learn how to design and communicate visually through print and digital media. The program is primarily studio-based where you will work on a wide variety of projects exploring typography, image making (illustration and photography), and digital media. Supporting practice-based studio work, Critical Theory will introduce you to the practice of design and key issues in design history and theory.

This four-year program is perfect if you want to become a graphic designer, illustrator, typographer, or digital media designer.
