Course summary

Develop an innovative, individual language and deal with the demands of an intensively competitive global marketplace as you experiment with various methods of visual communication.

Course overview

We support design through research, taking into consideration the needs of client and audience. Acquiring knowledge of the cultural, social and ethical concerns of design, and developing your position on these issues, will give you the confidence to push the boundaries of design, exploring its social, commercial and entrepreneurial possibilities.

Why study this course with us?

Studying with us will offer you the opportunity to be part of a creative community where you can reflect on and react to the changing nature of your discipline, and develop as an individual confident in undertaking any design problem.

You will work in a ‘hands-on’ multidisciplinary learning environment. Our curriculum has been developed to educate in the art and science of visual communication with an emphasis on professional practice and skills acquisition, while also encouraging creative risk-taking and experimentation. Your learning will be supported within a setting that provokes creative experiences, embracing communication design as a social and commercial activity.

Teaching methods

You will learn in large and small group settings via lectures; seminars; tutorials; tutor- and student-led discussion; technical and creative workshops; individual and group task activities; and individually directed and structured study.

Assessment

The majority of assessment is project-based, comprising a body of research, idea generation and design development, plus finished graphic artefacts. A small amount of assessment is through presentations or pitches. There are no exams.

Job prospects

Graphic Design at the University of Chester will prepare you for a wide range of careers within and beyond the creative industries. Our graduates are working with employers such as the BBC, Laura Ashley, Mamas & Papas, Music Magpie, Games Workshop and the NHS, designing user experience and user interface, websites, packaging, brand identities, apps, motion graphics, editorial and interiors.
