Course Description

With an emphasis on research and problem-solving, our MA Graphic Design course at UCA Epsom will give you, as a graphic designer, the tools and confidence to develop your practice as a skilled professional communicator.

Our priority on this course is to ensure that your work comes from a place of informed and independent research and that you master your own unique style and visual language within graphic design.

On this course, you’ll explore different applications of visual language and how it relates to your area of specialism. In the process, you’ll enhance your understanding of the aesthetic and commercial value of your work, and build professional experience that will make your practice more innovative.

Benefitting from our course staff’s extensive industry links, you’ll also have the chance to foster relationships with industry partners within your area of specialism. UCA is proud to boast connections with a range of organisations including the BBC, FutureBrand, GF Smith and Typocircle.

Through guest lectures, live briefs and opportunities to network with industry experts, you’ll gain current experience of the design industry, learning how to present both yourself and your design work in a professional arena.

Please note – this course will be moving to UCA Farnham for 2022 entry.
