Communication design is a critical tool that probes the complexities of contemporary culture — in, through and for society — while always striving to incite change. This research-led taught programme develops acute awareness with respect to heritage and a boldness to shape futures. Communication Design uses a variety of media to creatively communicate ideas and concepts that can inform, challenge, educate and transform lives. The field of communication continues to evolve rapidly. Our students are encouraged to discover new possibilities and creative practices while developing the critical, creative and technical excellence needed to succeed within the fields of contemporary graphic design, illustration and moving image design. The MA Communication Design is aimed at building on knowledge and practice acquired at undergraduate level and within professional practice, with applicants proposing a research agenda that will provide a focus for their study. The programme is designed, timetabled and delivered in such a way as to enable design practitioners to undertake their study alongside maintaining their professional career.
