Study type Taught


With an MA in Illustration from Falmouth Flexible, you’ll join a community packed with esteemed alumni recognised for their work around the world, and who are constantly contributing to the conversation of the increasingly prominent role illustration plays within visual communication.

This course is about much more than designing. It delves deep into the wider world of illustration, exploring the social, environmental and cultural responsibilities attached to the practice, as well as the practical, historical, cultural and theoretical context in which the field operates. You’ll also focus specifically on illustration in a business context, developing entrepreneurial skills that will inform your business future or career.

Naturally, illustrating plays a key role in the course. You’ll strengthen your creative skills, unpack the role of storytelling within visual communication and produce a final body of work paired with a critical context report.

Through it all, you’ll have the opportunity to engage and network with your peers online, familiarising yourself with the manner in which contemporary illustration businesses practice today.
