Bath Spa University: Design (Visual Communication)
|Institution||Bath Spa University View institution profile|
|Department||Bath School of Design|
A practical MA in Visual Communication for specialist photographers, designers and illustrators.
Reach your creative potential through exciting professional visual communication projects.
Learn from accomplished design professionals and receive excellent academic and technical support.
Work in dedicated studio spaces and benefit from excellent workshop and fabrication facilities.
This is a practical Master of Arts in Visual Communication Design, grounded in individual research, in which you'll work alongside other postgraduate students from the Schools of Art and Design. Our view is that by integrating your methods with those in related fields, you’ll become a more effective specialist photographer, graphic designer or illustrator. At a time when boundaries between these disciplines are changing – and in some cases dissolving – this is particularly important.
We encourage you to work independently and collaboratively, developing a strong contextualised approach to visual language, whilst building a strong professional and critical context for your practice.
On successful completion of the course, your increased confidence and abilities will be clearly evident in the portfolios you've developed. Through contact with sector leaders, you'll be ready to move into industry, perhaps in a design agency or as a freelancer.
|Level||RQF Level 7|
We're looking for energetic and self-motivated individuals who can work on their own but also see the value in working in collaboration with others. They should enjoy asking questions and solving creative problems.
You’ll need a good undergraduate degree in a design, visual communication or art specialism, or its equivalent in terms of learning or experience, and a good working knowledge of design, visual communication or art contexts.
Fundamentally, you’ll be selected on your ability to thrive on this course, as demonstrated by your portfolio and interview.
