Honours in Graphic Design
About this degree
The BAHons (Graphic Design) is a highly challenging postgraduate programme that gives you the opportunity to develop specialised design expertise in an area of graphic design or multimedia that interests you the most.
Within the structure of four compulsory, integrated modules, you will extend your knowledge of design-related trends, concepts and theory and you will develop advanced conceptual, perceptual and design abilities. You will also direct and drive your own projects and engage in independent academic research in your chosen field of design specialisation, under the guidance of a supervisor.
The emphasis throughout is on developing designers who are well-rounded, think independently, and who find new, innovative and ethical ways of working in the design industry, given the challenges around productivity, money, technology and human resources.
What makes our honour’s degree unique is not only its academic rigour but also its emphasis on real world application. We also offer you flexibility of Saturday classes, attending workshops and online discussions to accommodate working designers. As a BAHons (Graphic Design) graduate, you will be highly sought after in the job market, as you will have a sophisticated portfolio of design work. You will also have the skills for senior design positions, such as independent thinking, self-discipline, perseverance, finding innovative solutions to issues, working in groups and communicating effectively.
