The Graphic Communication course is built on the development of strong ideas and the selection of the appropriate media channel to reach the desired target audience. As new technologies continue to offer opportunities for the communication industry, the course aims to prepare you to work with agility within this shifting context.
Working in our open plan design studio you will develop a high level of competency in fundamental principles, including exploration of type, image creation and capture, moving image and sound, and will be encouraged to develop outcomes across both physical and digital platforms.
Individual and collaborative projects are key to the delivery, encouraging group working and peer review, essential skills within the workplace. Idea generation and creative exploration are also central to all projects and you’ll be challenged to produce original and commercially relevant work.
Throughout your studies you will attend the Graphics Talk lecture programme, designed to expose you to some of the leading practitioners from within the creative industries; exploring design in its widest context — what it is, what it has been and what it will become.
NUA students stand out from the crowd for the ‘do it to see it to do it’ attitude that no other university teaches.
