FACULTY OF DESIGN
School of Design Communication
Visual communication is essential to civilised cultures and societies. In the School of Design Communication you learn to shape words and create iconic imagery, signs and symbols that help people connect with one another.
Understand contemporary visual culture and equip yourself with multi-disciplinary conceptual thinking skills via an appropriate balance between academic components and studio-based learning methods. This ensures a good grasp of theoretical knowledge and gives you the opportunity to hone your intellectual and creative thought processes by “thinking through making”.
The wide range of knowledge and experience you will acquire will enable you to engage in the industry in many capacities and in an increasing number of corporate and social sectors, opening the door to a slew of career options, including graphic designers, advertising consultants, copywriters, branding experts, motion graphics designers, photographers, illustrators, web designers, packaging designers, wayfinding specialists, exhibition designers, to name a few. Or would you prefer to push the disciplinary boundaries and design systems, user platforms, or services?
