Summary

MA Graphic Communication Design brings critical depth and rigour to an increasingly noisy and disorienting visual landscape. The course intervenes meaningfully in a world continuously reconfigured by its modes of communication and knowledge production. It is part of the Graphic Communication Design programme.

MA Graphic Communication Design pursues a direct and in-depth connection between the applied arts tradition of graphic design and a critical and creative approach to communication. As a subject of study, graphic communication design cultivates a considered stance towards visual and other media. This stance is activated as an approach to challenging and reconfiguring culture. The goal of this course is to engage the tools of graphic design in experimentation with the basic forms by which knowledge is constituted and mobilised.
On this course, you will simultaneously develop critical positions, through and about graphic communication design and claim new forms through which they can be enacted and deployed. Rather than presuming narrow definitions of graphic or communication design, the course aims to provide you with the tools to situate and develop your individual practice in active dialogue with an expanded and evolving field.

Central Saint Martins is a world-renowned arts and design college which brings together a diverse range of creative practices under one roof. It is known for breaking new ground and asking difficult questions. Across nine programmes of study, the College champions the power of imagination, curiosity, diligence, ambition and risk-taking. It challenges the cores of its disciplines, encouraging collision and exchange across boundaries to create unexpected outcomes.

The Central Saint Martins community is dedicated to constantly discovering new ways of thinking, making and doing.
