BA (Hons) Digital Arts (Graphic Design)

Course overview

This graph­ic design course has an indus­try focus, explor­ing the con­tem­po­rary aspects of dig­i­tal graph­ic design prac­tices and pro­vid­ing a route into the dig­i­tal and cre­ative industries.

In the dig­i­tal envi­ron­ment tra­di­tion­al design skills alone are no longer enough and this course will teach you how to make take tra­di­tion­al skills and prac­tices and inte­grate them into the dig­i­tal world. We will pro­vide you with the skills and sup­port to launch your career as a cre­ative prac­ti­tion­er in one of the many occu­pa­tions avail­able in the cre­ative and dig­i­tal industries.

On the course you will cre­ate graph­ic design projects and have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enter nation­al com­pe­ti­tions while using indus­try stan­dard equip­ment and soft­ware. Along­side your graph­ics mod­ules you will also be intro­duced to basic prin­ci­ples of pho­tog­ra­phy while work­ing with peers on both the core and pho­to­graph­ic dig­i­tal arts cours­es. You will learn about the cen­tral debates and dis­cours­es that inform con­tem­po­rary dig­i­tal art and graph­ic design and under­stand the indus­try in which you will work. You will learn to crit­i­cal­ly appraise your own work and the work of oth­ers, in a con­struc­tive and pro­duc­tive way.

You will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to do a 120 hour / three-week work place­ment with a design agency, media organ­i­sa­tion or work on an indus­try com­mis­sion. You will learn to work cre­ative­ly, and prob­lem solve in a group in live’ projects and real-world briefs. Your under­grad­u­ate major project will enable you to show­case your tal­ents and exhib­it your work to the pub­lic and sec­tor professionals.

Through­out the course you will be sup­port­ed in devel­op­ing your pro­fes­sion­al pro­file and your entre­pre­neur­ial skills to ensure a smooth tran­si­tion to pro­fes­sion­al employment.

All stu­dents com­plet­ing the course will have a port­fo­lio of dig­i­tal work in the form of a web­site show to prospec­tive employ­ers and you will have mul­ti­ple oppor­tu­ni­ties on the course to devel­op your net­work of pro­fes­sion­al contacts.

The cours­es at Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre Peter­bor­ough are stud­ied in small­er class sizes com­pared with oth­er uni­ver­si­ties, a typ­i­cal class size is under 30 students.
