Course summary

Carve your path in a rapidly-changing media world, where creating and communicating meaningful and effective ideas is paramount. You’ll benefit from frequent industry contact and expert tutors, preparing you for a range of careers in communication design.

Introduction

Develop an individual critical voice in communication design with this transformative, 45-week studio-based course. You’ll keep your learning current by engaging with projects and insights supplied by leading global ‘provocateurs’, including writers, scientists, artists, curators and designers. You’ll also look into the political, cultural and ethical contexts facing modern design and culture. This creates a rich space for interdisciplinary collaboration, and through our international, multi-disciplinary cohort of students, leads to new connections and ideas at the boundaries between research and creative practice.

What our graduates do

Communication design is a broad field of study, and your career choices will depend on your own personal project focus. These can include graphic design, branding, service design, exhibition design, UX design, criticism and writing, teaching, research and PhD study. You can also enter related fields like television, advertising, and the heritage and cultural sectors.

What you'll learn

You’ll go on a progressive learning journey via three study blocks: Deconstruction, Reconstruction, and Reinvention. This format allows you to unpack your existing skills and interests, and learn to answer complex communications problems by considering global issues and experimental approaches. You’ll then explore new insights and build towards your final MA project.
