Course Summary

This MPhil course will allow you to explore your own interests in the area of graphic design and typography, supported by the expertise of our staff. Informed by your particular discipline, you’ll frame your research within the context of current critical debates, examining modern production and dissemination methods used both nationally and internationally. Your research can be practice-led and conducted primarily through design projects. You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of graphic design and typography, with a focus on type design and type history. We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, and encourage you to get involved with external activities like conference organization and giving papers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in Cambridge School of Art, or organize research events such as conferences and seminars. In conjunction with University research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
