School of Design Communication

New literacy in thinking, communicating and design making.

At the School of Design Communication, students are nurtured to become 21st century designers with new industry contexts, practices and experiences within and outside of their discipline. Students learn to push the boundaries of their design practice and understand contemporary visual culture, equipping themselves with multidisciplinary conceptual thinking skills. An appropriate balance between academic components and studio-based learning methods ensures a good grasp of theoretical knowledge and provides the opportunity to hone intellectual and creative thought processes. The School of Design Communication hopes to inspire new ways of thinking, doing and learning in design, through design and by design.
