Illustration and Visual Communication offers a creative, critical and professional programme converging traditional approaches and practices in drawing and illustration with the technologies and processes of visual communication through digital and online environments.

The syllabus is designed to nurture and develop you as an informed, reflective and creative individual. It will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of image media and visual communication for application and employment within both the traditional markets for illustration, and the emerging field of viral communication and interactivity for information, the media and entertainment.
