Communication Design, MA
The Master’s programme in Communication Design at UE merges theory and practice in order to strengthen knowledge and skill set, as well as hone the ability to develop relevant solutions and an advanced design process. The programme promotes creative design skills, knowledge of the theories and history of art & design, the ability to critically analyse contemporary phenomena, and the practical understanding of both analogue and digital media implementation.
The degree programme combines the fields of art and design with culture and the humanities. Social, economic, political, and institutional issues are addressed and reflected upon using a wide range of academic discourses that support and enhance the design process. This enables graduates to actively participate in the development and shaping of globally interconnected cultures, manifesting the importance of the designer’s role in the global community.
Our Communication Design MA is the ideal next step for students who have completed a BA programme in Art & Design and wish to broaden and deepen their knowledge to open up new perspectives. The degree paves the way for careers in both the classic professional profiles of art & design, as well as in new and emerging fields for communication designers in the 21st century. It is also ideal for students with a background in business, humanities, cultural studies, media studies and Science and Technology Studies (STS).

The aim is to train creative personalities who can build communicative processes in political, economic, scientific and social contexts on a local or global level.
