Visual Communication

This is a practical course. It focuses on the distinct yet related strands of photography, illustration and graphic design, encouraging students to collaborate in examining the connection between each discipline and the shared visual language they use. As specialists in each field and in consultation with their tutors, students will produce practical projects, both individually and in conjunction with others. This approach will help to provide students with a coherent professional and conceptual context for their practice. The course is designed to allow our students to re-establish and develop their own practice, while collaborating with and maintaining a critical dialogue with others in parallel fields.

Course modules

Research methodologies; developing practice; practice in context; practice in a global context; Master's project.

Assessment methods

Assessment of modules is by written submission, presentation and exhibition. A dissertation is optional and can be negotiated on an individual basis; it can form a part of the final exhibition and will be assessed at the same point.
