Course summary

Can’t decide between graphic design and photography and want to combine these two areas of study? This degree programme develops knowledge and understanding of both subjects, combining digital media with more traditional graphic design and photographic processes. You’ll encounter diverse and challenging practical assignments supported by appropriate theory.Graphic design and photography are two of the most influential and powerful forms of visual communication. We constantly read adverts, engage with websites and spend money based on choices influenced by messages delivered through graphic design and photography. Graphic designers produce content for digital and traditional media, creatively combining photography, illustration and typography to communicate messages for clients from big brands to small businesses.Starting with foundation studies that offer a structured introduction to a wide range of materials, processes and techniques, we’ll support you as you develop your own line of visual enquiry, explore different areas of art, graphic design and photography, and develop a sound portfolio of creative work.Following the foundation year, we’ll guide as you develop applied skills in a broad range of graphic design media across digital, screen, multimedia and print-based graphics and gain an understanding of graphic design software. You’ll explore design theories and principles and have the opportunity to learn about the historical and critical elements of design. Alongside all of this, we’ll support you to gain photography theory and practical skills.Your wider study of visual arts theory will help develop your visual language and understanding. We’ll also focus on helping you to develop career-relevant skills. Creativity, technical knowledge, problem-solving, time management, sales, marketing and customer care skills are all essential for success as a professional graphic designer and photographer.Alternatively, on successful completion of the foundation year, you can opt to transfer to one of our other degrees, including Animation and Illustration, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Photography, or Textiles and Surface Design. You can also explore transferring to another subject area offered by the University of Bolton, such as Special and Visual Effects or Games Art.
