In this course you’ll explore how ideas are generated and the creative and exciting ways they can be visually communicated across a range of print and digital media. You’ll learn to master industry specific software, critical design thinking, visual problem solving and authentic production techniques through a range of industry projects.
As part of your studies, you’ll have the chance to take on a professional placement, giving you on-the job industry experience. You’ll work with real clients and develop a portfolio across both print (branding and publication design) and digital environments (web and mobile application design) to build your skills in a dynamic and rapidly changing global industry.
The Bachelor of Arts (Graphic Design) is a nationally accredited and registered award in tertiary education. When you graduate, you can apply for Associate Status with the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) and the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
You can add to your Graphic Design degree by completing a double major. Recommended double major options include Photography, Games Art and Design, Screen Production, Communication and Media Studies, or Web Communication.
When you graduate, you’ll have the skills to work in both digital and print visual communication industries. You can move into a career in advertising and promotion, art direction, branding and corporate identity, app design, and web design.
