University of Northampton
Design (Graphic Communication)
The course is an interdisciplinary programme which is intrinsically practice led and applied in nature, students are able to elect their pathway title according to their interests and career ambition through the title of their dissertation. The programme promotes intellectual investigation largely through practical studies driven by self selected study projects and is a professionally orientated, creative programme developing understanding of the need in contemporary design for inter/cross-disciplinary problem solving, underpinned by a robust theory aware ethos. For students who wish to enrich their programme, opportunities for work experience and support from professional practitioners can be available. Students electing to take the design pathway have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of the various contexts within which work of a cross disciplinary nature is developed, communicated and understood at an international level.
BA or BSc at minimum 2.1 Class in a relevant design or arts subject.
Core modules: research in the arts; design issues and visual communication; cultural and theoretical contexts in design; contemporary design practices; dissertation/project; independent study in the arts and design or creative practice and enterprise.
The assessment outcomes should demonstrate the achievement level through a wide variety of explicit forms, such as essays, images and artefacts, also implicitly through appropriate developmental and documentation information, such as sketchbooks, critical diaries and notebooks; assessment is structured to offer feedback and indicate academic level against criteria, but also advises on the integration between ideas, their intention and development and the means by which they are presented.
