Our MA in Visual Communication course is delivered over one year for full-time students. You will study for three semesters, each semester takes place over a 15 week period.
The processes of design thinking - research, analysis, evaluation, creativity, craft and production - across all specialisms within visual communication are central to this course.
You'll have the chance to learn in our Research & Development labs that we've developed as a result of our partnerships with organisations, practitioners and industry. The labs allow you to take part in learning, teaching, research, innovation and professional development within visual communication.
The delivery of the programme is split into three stages: PG Cert, PG Dip and MA. Through the completion of modules you will attain your MA in Visual Communication.
The modules are designed to echo the three stages of development: your proficiency, your expertise and your mastery.
The PG Cert and PG Dip stages contain a 40 credit aspect and a 20 credit aspect. The Masters level is made up of a single 60 credit module.
Semester 1 PgCert: Analytical Practice; Dissemination - Case Study in Specialism.
Semeseter 2 PgDip: Contextual and Creative Practice; Dissemination - Instructional Lecture in Specialism.
Semester 3 Master's: Major Project.
The course provides a taught and structured experience; formal content is delivered and evaluated through a range of lectures (traditional and interactive), seminars, workshops, peer review exercises, resource based learning and individual and group tutorials; students undertake case studies, presentations and reflective journals.
