Course content

MA 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. You can elect to work in areas including: graphic design, graphic communication, illustration, information design, interactive communication, publishing and typography. As part of your studies, you will engage in critical debate around contemporary design issues pertinent to your individual research projects.

Under expert tuition you will consider the relationship between your individual practice and its potential dissemination in a wider context. With access to industry standard resources, you will be supported to develop the skills needed to generate innovative projects of high professional quality.

Creative thinking and innovation are at the core of the MA philosophy and you will engage with students from across the postgraduate community to share opportunities and debate contemporary issues.

We encourage our students to engage in critical discourse through course specific seminars, lectures and critiques; larger NUA symposia such as Dialogues (Fine Art) and Cowbird (Design); and attendance at national and international exhibitions and conferences.

Applications

The offer of entry onto a Masters Degree (MA) is based on an expectation that you have the potential to fulfil the aims of the course of study and achieve the standard required to successfully complete the award. Entrants should normally have achieved a BA (Hons)/BSc Degree of 2:1 or above (or its equivalent), in a subject related to your proposed course of study.

Applicants who hold a Degree from another discipline may also be considered for entry, subject to the submission of a satisfactory portfolio of art, design or media-related work in support of their application.

The majority of applicants to courses at NUA will be invited to attend an interview. This provides an invaluable chance to meet face-to-face and is the major factor in determining the success of your submission. The interview is an opportunity to assess your work and the suitability of your application and also provides you with a chance to assess NUA’s staff, campus and facilities and ask questions. The key focus of your application process is on your portfolio. Some courses may require additional entry requirements or passes in specific subjects.

  • Detach the Reference Form and forward to your chosen referee with a request to complete and return to NUA at the address indicated.
