Course Summary

Our Graphic Design and Visualisation MA aims to develop a specialist approach to graphic design and visualisation through combining traditional and contemporary approaches in the field. You will be taught in a progressive, research-intensive environment, and will gain a first-hand understanding of the relationship between design and research by working alongside research and academic staff. You will be given opportunities to develop a personalised visual language through visual thinking combined with traditional and contemporary media. Theory and practice are intertwined as you express your ideas through the production of written assignments and artefacts that are aligned with your specialist area of interest. You will have full access to a range of outstanding learning and teaching facilities, including newly refurbished study areas, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a theatre, music rooms and a variety of offices for seminars and small group activities. These inspiring spaces will enable you to explore numerous creative possibilities and produce work of an industry standard.

The MA will provide you with the theoretical, conceptual, practical and entrepreneurial skills to further develop your practice in a professional environment. The universal demand for graphical knowledge and increasing emphasis on visualising complexity across diverse fields provides a vast range of career choices for graduates. Depending on individual aspirations, students evolve their practical, historical and theoretical interests for a career in industry or academic research through PhD study. Graduates may also decide to start their own businesses venture, or work freelance in a range of design-related disciplines. Our Graphic Design and Visualisation MA programme aims to aid you in using reflection and analysis to connect and improve known and unknown situations, and communicating ideas, concepts, theories, and arguments with different audiences.
