Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication

In the Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication students learn how to create visual messages and experiences that communicate information and ideas across many media.

Students experiment with both traditional and emerging design practices, and develop a visual language that allows them to work across digital, physical and analogue media. This visual language is broad, encompassing typography, interaction and image-making.

This degree prepares students for the evolving nature of design by engaging with the social, technological and ecological context of design practice. Graduates are industry-ready, thanks to their ability to articulate design practices and process, the degree's internship program, and the curriculum's emphasis on real-world problem solving.
