In the Visual Communication programme, students work on planning, implementing and transmitting information in visual form. On the basis of individual projects, they develop their own communication language and design stance.
The broad modular offer links theory and practical work in the studio. The course prepares students for the professional world, which calls for designers with an independent style, an interdisciplinary working technique and knowledge linking many different areas. Students learn to make decisions, reflect on ideas, argue creatively and develop their own visual language.
The Bachelor’s degree is a professional qualification. After completing the course, graduates usually work freelance or as employees in agencies and workshops. The BA qualifies graduates for a subsequent Master Programme in Communication Design.
