We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Graphic Design explore advanced artistic techniques to produce printed and digitised imagery and text for numerous platforms such as magazines, advertisements and websites.
Taught MA and MFA courses are typical for the field. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Art or Design Technology.
Visual communication is a huge part of day-to-day life. As a graphic designer, you could be involved in numerous branding and advertising campaigns, website development projects or even publishing.
These courses are often interdisciplinary in approach, combining theory such as social politics, cultural theory and communications and applied graphic design practise. For example, you might explore consumer behaviours in relation to branding, logo design or even packaging of domestic products through computer-generated design.
Careers in the field are highly varied, and will differ depending on your specialisation. For example, you might wish to work on a freelance basis producing digital or printed content for any number of companies. Alternatively, you may opt to work for a design agency, or as part of an in-house department for large companies such as retailers, museums and art galleries producing multi-channelled content.
