Communication Design touches on every aspect of 21st century life. It is of fundamental importance to the way we relate to each other and our environment.
NUA is a centre of design expertise with students winning competitions of national and international importance and graduates leading and working at significant global agencies.
You will be encouraged to challenge conventional thinking as you consider the practical application of your ideas. As part of a community of researchers, tutors and fellow students, you will engage in debate around contemporary concerns regarding design culture, society and environment. The most recent NUA Design Symposium was described by Creative Review magazine as having a ‘world-class speaker programme’.
Interdisciplinary collaboration is essential to the postgraduate experience and you will work alongside students from across the MA community. This will stimulate your intellectual curiosity and enable you to develop a network of contacts with different skills and perspectives.
With access to substantial industry resources you can elect to work in areas including: graphic design, graphic communication, illustration, information design, interactive communication, publishing and typography. You will be supported to develop the skills needed to stand out in the sector.
