MA Graphic Design Communication

This course is aimed at applicants looking to be authors of their own practice. The course recognises the need for different voices and approaches. We are open to individual definitions of authorship, encouraging exploration and realisation of a singular perspective by providing a supportive and flexible approach to new modes of generating, presenting and disseminating work. This could encompass innovative uses of process or technology, the development of a signature style or an investigation into new models of working.

At the same time students are expected to examine their practice within a broader cultural context, considering the roles and responsibilities of a designer in relation to societal, environmental, and ethical issues. Whilst this may challenge and redefine existing boundaries, the primary concern of the course is to develop work that has integrity and autonomy.

The course is studio based, practice led, and underpinned by a theoretical framework that aims to promote lively, autonomous and reflective learners who have their own creative position on contemporary debates and society. Throughout the course students participate in individual and group tutorials and attend workshops with outside writers, designers, and artists. They develop skills through Personal Professional Development and on-line resources. Postgraduate talks introduce students to a range of visiting speakers whilst the in-house Graphic Design Communication lecture series offers the chance to hear current practitioners discussing their work.
