Study type Taught


The MA Visual Communication Design course at Cardiff Met responds to the increasing urgency to overhaul social structures and systems to address the complex issues of our time.

This Masters degree in Visual Communication Design encourages you to critically position yourself in relation to human-centred and post-human-centred approaches to design research and practice. You will explore both speculative and solutionist approaches to design, working collaboratively and in an interdisciplinary context.

Alongside your own research projects, you will have opportunities to take part in shorter design challenges that approach ways to shape sustainable and collective futures.

Our Visual Communication Design Master’s Degree promotes material-oriented approaches to design. You will develop tools, methods and processes that enable new ways of envisioning, inhabiting, communicating, and disrupting complex issues, places, and futures.

You will be supported to focus in on a particular context, understand the correct methodological approach and apply the necessary tools to explore the complexities within your area of research.

You will develop your awareness of how and where your project and approaches might be applied, looking beyond existing euro-centric models.

You will take part in a range of workshops, lectures, testbeds, short projects, and exhibitions, and challenge the distinctions between theory and practice. As well as taking traditional approaches to research dissemination, you will explore varied types of academic knowledge production, such as experimental, open-source and multi-modal research publication practices.
