MA Communicating Complexity is a creatively led communication design course in a world-leading graphic design programme. On this course you will be encouraged to advance experimental approaches to communication. Project briefs set in collaboration with a range of industries and sectors, as well as by your student cohort provide a springboard for creative and future-facing approaches. Course Learning Outcomes are referenced to UNESCO’s Learning objectives for achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Innovation in communication design is critical to even the most ambitious ideas and technologies as well as organisations seeking to make an impact at scale. By foregrounding complexity, this course encourages more inclusive, accessible, and culturally resonant inroads into the world’s challenges with the ambition to equip you with the ability to bring clarity, context, and criticality to engaging with and communicating complexity.
