About

This well-established and broad-based course aims to encourage your creativity, individuality and personal growth through the study of graphic communication design. 

Graphic design is a multi-disciplinary activity that requires a wide range of intellectual, creative and technical skills. The Graphic Communication Design (Honours) emphasis at the University of Westminster places emphasis on the design, presentation and communication of ideas and information suited to the genuine needs of the end-user. We seek to produce communication that may enrich people's lives by enabling them to be better informed about the world in which they live.

You will be encouraged to develop your awareness and understanding of the social contexts and environmental responsibilities of design so that you can identify communication strategies that will enrich people's lives by enabling them to be better informed about the world in which they live.

You will learn to engage audiences through imaginative and creative design solutions that may challenge, persuade, shock, provoke, excite and entertain, but always aim to inform. You will also develop the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
