Comments about MA Graphic Design by Project - At the institution - London - Greater London
Further to the general entry requirements, a good command of English is essential. Overseas students must have an IELTS qualification to a minimum of Level 7. If you are applying directly from a BA Course, without experience of professional practice, you must be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of graphic design practice which will be supported by a good degree and portfolio of work.
MA Graphic Design by Project
The MA by Project was developed for students interested in furthering their understanding of design research practice and/or graphic design history and theory and has been designed for those who have already established a research focus prior to entry.
The programme encourages an in-depth and critical exploration of an agreed self-initiated proposal that results in either a visual or text-based research outcome. It is intended to enable you to develop a greater critical and systematic understanding of graphic design practice, its history and theory, by engaging with a negotiated, self-initiated specialist research project. The Major Project may result in a visual outcome with an accompanying critical essay or be undertaken as a conventional written thesis.
As a student on this course you will be part of a thriving and vibrant research community comprised of other MA students, Research Degree students as well as staff who are actively engaged in design practice and research on a national and international level. The course is designed for practitioners and those working in the area of design history and theory who are interested in developing specific research projects within a graphic design research environment. The course is also recommended for students interested in continuing with their studies at Research Degree level.
