The degree has a strong focus on visual communication in the global marketplace and how to design for both business and consumer audiences across different cultural contexts.

Students will: Employ innovative use of different visual and emerging media types across print, screen and packaging; develop effective design solutions for specific audiences; gain fluency in the visual vocabulary and technical skills relevant to visual communication design; and acquire image-making expertise and the ability to develop visual design artefacts using a range of analogue and digital media.
