Overview

The BA Graphic design course team believes that the future of the
discipline depends on the ability of visual communicators to operate
as cultural architects. As such, conventional notions of the graphic
designer as a passive receiver of information are replaced, with a
system that encourages students to become instigators in the research
and design process. This enables our undergraduates to sustain a
breadth and depth of enquiry across a wide range of visual
communication endeavours.

Students need a skills set that will allow them to react to
developments in culture, concepts and technological change. However,
if the boundaries of graphic design are to expand, education must
create opportunities to challenge the status quo.

We aim to provide students with the knowledge needed to survive in
the design industry as it is today. We also want to create a platform
from which students can push the discipline and profession through
experiment, exploration, and the development of a personal visual
language.

You will be encouraged to enter industry set competitions and the
course has a long history of achievement in these schemes, producing
many award-winning students and graduates. The course also offers
opportunities for students to choose their own subject areas, to
research and develop over an extended time frame. |

Career opportunities

One of the aims of the course is to create a student focused culture
that develops life long independent learners with the ability to
continue professional and personal development. The course also
enables its students to find work across a wide variety of visual
communication disciplines.

The majority of students locate work within design consultancies,
the publishing industries, advertising agencies, multidisciplinary
design groups, web design, television, film, multimedia and their own
freelance practice.
