Technology is moving fast and society is changing with it. If you’re passionate about all things visual and the impact design has on people and culture, this course is for you.
The Bachelor degree allows you to immerse yourself in the design world, develop strong visual communication skills and understand the tools you need to make it in the industry. It will give you the opportunity to build a professional portfolio of your own work, while investigating a process-based design approach and engaging with mentors from the industry on real world projects.
Learning takes place in a studio environment where small classes encourage students to come together to collaborate on projects. From initial concept through to design and delivery, you will explore different design tools and methods to graduate fully equipped to enter the industry.
