Overview

The Graphic Design programme of Royal Academy of Art, The Hague encourages students to ask questions about the social responsibilities of a contemporary designer, tackle challenges posed by the rapidly evolving new-media landscape, and seek answers to the problems of tomorrow.

The programme is built around four main courses: design, interaction, image and typography, and numerous electives including PlayLab, Letterstudio and Design Office. Our department is internationally known for its high level of education, its investigative and conceptual teaching approach, and excellence in the fields of typeface design and typography.

Further Education

After completing their Bachelor’s degrees, graduates may enrol in a Master programme in design (MA Design) or art (MA Fine Arts), or in other Master programmes at other art academies. In addition to our own Master programme in Type and Media, graduates have gone on to pursue Master’s degrees at many renowned institutions, including the Royal College in London, the Yale School of Art in New Haven, ECAL – Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne, the Typography Workshop at ArtEZ in Arnhem, the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam and the University of Leiden.
