Our MA Graphic Design and Typography at ARU, Anglia Ruskin University is unique in its focus on building your graphic design practice and exploring and developing your role as visual designer and creative.
The course addresses issues including integration and diversity, behavioural change, community cohesion, and environmental challenges.
Whatever your background, you will advance your visual practice in areas that are important for design, such as concept development, communication and typographic design and textuality. You will combine this with extending your knowledge on the complexities of socio-environmental problems; insight into institutional and government structures; creative project development and management; design methods; and collaboration processes. This means you will gain the confidence to start out in a career as graphic designer and have an active creative role in social and environmental change-making processes.
As a postgraduate student at ARU, you’ll have access to a dedicated base studio, along with specialist facilities such as film, photography and printmaking studios. You will receive training in creative software such as Adobe Cloud – and can access training in all our other art and creative industries facilities, too.
The delivery of the course draws upon these bodies for codes of practice and other professional guidelines, case studies, ongoing dialogue on issues of interest and concern within the profession, and direct input to assignments and module content. The philosophy of the course is informed by the perspective of both the employer/client and the profession. Cambridge School of Art has initiated an Employers Consultative Group, comprising practitioners and employers, to ensure an appropriate alignment between student capability and employer need.
