Program Description

MA Communication Design

University of the Arts London

MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martins provides a laboratory where creative experimentation and practice meets real-world experience and demands. By facilitating a critical and widely experimental approach to visual form and media production, we encourage our students to become versatile designers, astute commentators and agents of change. We welcome creative individuals who see and think critically and are therefore compelled to make and act inventively and purposefully.

Reasons to Apply

  • We are designers and researchers. We take a hybridised approach to communication. Through a critical engagement with our changing media environment, we transform and extend the traditional practices and tools of graphic design, type and image. We draw on a wide range of fields and disciplines ranging from cultural studies to engineering
  • We collaborate and we challenge. As designers, we seek meaningful change on behalf of a diverse range of communities and publics. Our recent project partners include Camden Council, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Dartington Social Research Unit, Kings College, the Financial Times and Hewlett Packard
  • We are innovators and inventors. You will be challenged to position yourself as a leader. Our graduates have gone on to launch their own studios and publishing companies, work for large-scale institutions and corporations around the world, freelance in their chosen areas, or develop their own new models for design practice. An increasing number of our graduates are following the MA with PhD study and choosing to pursue a design research career
  • We exchange and we engage. Both the Graphic Communication Design Programme at CSM and the Postgraduate Community at University of the Arts London play host to a range of talks and workshops featuring a vibrant range of internationally acclaimed designers and thinkers. Recent visitors and speakers to the college include Jessica Helfand, Fred Deakin, Peter Hall, Nick Bell, Michael Wolff, Connie Fryer, and Prem Krishnamurthy. The programme’s current practitioner in residence is Paul Elliman. Lucienne Roberts and Jack Schulze are our current fellows
  • MA Communication Design has been designed to enable you to pursue your studies whilst also undertaking part-time employment, internships or care responsibilities.
