About

The Bachelor of Arts in Graphic and Digital Design at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in the fast-moving and ever changing world of design. It’s designed for the digital era and takes account of the latest technologies that are the canvas for your creativity.

Overview

Graphic and Digital Design is one of the most rapidly changing design disciplines, where you need to be able to respond with creativity and ingenuity to an increasingly media and visually-savvy public.
