About

The MA Graphic Design course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)  encourages the diversity of design study that is possible within the wider field of Graphic Design. 

Overview

The Graphic Design course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) focus is rooted in visual communication research, underpinned by theory and with an emphasis on the development of a very personal body of practical work. 

Throughout the course students are encouraged to pursue a unique personal line of inquiry within any area of contemporary graphic design practice or explore the potential of design diversity. 

By the end of the course all students should have completed a cohesive body of work to a professional standard and be able to clearly articulate a sound intellectual rationale and a broad critical viewpoint.

Learning

Practical work is carried out within our extensive and very well equipped studios and workshops.

Full time and part time students will be required to attend the Friday morning lecture programme throughout semesters 1 and 2. Full time students will also attend weekly seminars and tutorial sessions during the week. Part time students are scheduled for their practical sessions on a Friday afternoon, so that their commitment on campus allows for day release from their place of employment.

Opportunities

The MA Graphic Design course at The University of Central Lancashire is also delivered at our partner University in Thessaloniki, Greece. Students are able to study there for one semester. The MA will help further career opportunities in the field of Graphic Design and Visual Communication, giving recognition to each student’s individual practical and intellectual abilities.
