This degree programme gives you an introduction to today’s major global concerns, as well as visual and digital tools to help bring order to a sometimes overwhelming flow of information, and to truly affect people.
The programme is delivered through a series of projects, and you will work independently as well as engage in group work. In specific modules, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with local and regional community actors in Småland.
The Visual Communication and Change programme from Linnaeus University is delivered in English and we welcome students from all over the world. This means that you as a student are part of a group defined by diversity and are well prepared for an international design career.
Visual Communication + Change is located in Kalmar, Småland – a region characterised by entrepreneurship, production and craft. Collaborative projects and educational visits give you plenty of opportunities to develop understandings and forge networks.
The study environment in Kalmar is explorative and creative, and you will work closely with our practising designers, visual artists, lecturers and guest lecturers from various departments at the university.
The programme prepares you for a number of careers in the world where you can use your creative skills in relation to your understanding of the complexity of sustainability.
