Course summary

**BA (Hons) Graphic Communication is an ambitious course that responds to the opportunities presented through emerging communication methods. It supports the development of specialist and generalist approaches to graphic communication, with a focus on the opportunities afforded by advances in new technologies alongside those offered by traditional or hybrid approaches.** Graphic design is a central component in the course, but this forms part of a wider understanding and application of expanded communication methods through graphic means. - Our staff are practising designers, with experience in design, typography, publishing, branding, photography, printmaking and more.- Explore both traditional resources and digital technology to support your creative design thinking.Effective communication is essential if we are to face the many challenges in front of us as a global community. Graphics is an international language with which to create 360 degree communication with each new generation. Working with both physical and digital resources, you will forge your own professional journey within an ever expanding communication landscape. You will have opportunities to explore motion, print, social and interactive media, to produce powerful and meaningful graphic content. We work with design agencies and public communication voices regionally, nationally and worldwide on commercial campaigns and social media. Recently our students have worked with JDO Raw, Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs, Plymouth Design Forum, Upshot Design Agency, Creative Conscience, Getty Images, Trevor Pettit, and Ramuntcho Matta.This course was previously titled BA (Hons) Graphic Design. The new title reflects the inclusion of a broader range of communication methods available using modern technology.

QUALIFICATION TYPE

UCAS Points : 112 - 120

Although many of our students do come in with top grades and high UCAS points, these aren’t necessarily essential for entry. We typically ask for a minimum of 112 UCAS points, but we understand that talented artists, designers and makers can have a wide range of relevant strengths and skills beyond formal qualifications. We’re just as interested in exploring your portfolio as we are in seeing your grades.
