This programme offers you an exciting opportunity to study graphic design and the wider role of the designer in society. The programme is about creative thinking and developing the knowledge and technical skills appropriate for employment in the creative industries. You will have the opportunity to develop practical graphics-focused techniques and processes in both studio and Mac-based environments.

At the end of the course, you will have created a portfolio of work that will support you in making applications to top up to a full BA (Hons) or for employment within the creative industries.
