BA(Hons) Art and Design
The broad-based Art & Design course explores a range of contemporary visual art practices emphasising the application of art in design contexts, or where design problems are introduced to a fine art context.
Working alongside other visual art courses, you will be introduced to traditional practices such as photographic darkroom techniques, screen-printing and new technologies and media. You will also gain a solid understanding of design and visual communication, which will help you explore creative ideas in a unique and effective way.
The broad nature of the course allows you to develop your skills and focus on the media that best suit your creativity and interests.
After graduating from the course you may embark on a career as a practising artist or designer. However, the skills you gain are highly transferable within the creative industry and can lead to roles in visual communication, the galleries and museums sector, public and community arts or arts education. The course can also lead to postgraduate study in art and design, photography, film making, critical theory or education.
