Visual Communication (PGCert, PGDip, MA)

Course Description

For creative practitioners working in the modern world of communication, it is essential that you are able to draw on a wide number of associated and complementary disciplines, thereby extending your ability to communicate effectively to a wide variety of audiences.

In this rapidly developing environment, the most successful practitioners are those people who can embrace alternative approaches, adopt the widest range of skills, and fully appreciate the many methods of media communication.

To help meet the challenge of multi-disciplinary design communication, the University of Gloucestershire has developed this innovative MA programme that draws on the strengths of its staff working across many creative fields.

Graphic Design, Photography, Illustration, Digital, Moving Image and Animation are just some of the complementary disciplines that you will be able to explore during this one year MA programme.

This is your opportunity to investigate integrated design and associated subject areas and then harness those particular skills to produce a uniquely effective creative communication.

You will be actively encouraged to look at problem-solving from alternative viewpoints, with an emphasis on creative experimentation and innovative risk-taking.

Your studies will be supported and enhanced through a stimulating programme of lectures and seminars, while further inspiration will be gained through talks and discussion groups led by visiting professional practitioners.

Your MA studies will have at their core your desire to develop a practical creative project; one you already have in mind or which arises as a result of consultation with your lecturers at the University of Gloucestershire.

The range of outcomes is unlimited, or rather; they are only limited by your imagination. Your final Major Project will predominantly be a practice-based piece that is either the product of a cross-disciplinary creative approach or focussed around a particular specialism.


* supports both specific and cross disciplinary project work

* opportunity to work with staff and peer groups from all complimentary disciplines including illustrators, graphic designers, animators, web designers, photographers etc.
