Overview

The BA (Hons) Graphic Design (1 Year Top-up) course at Southampton
Solent University aims to provide students with the knowledge needed
to thrive in the design industry. We also aim to create a platform
from which you can push the boundaries of the discipline through
experiment, exploration and the development of a personal visual
language.

The course team believes that the future of the discipline depends
on the ability of visual communicators to operate as cultural
architects. We encourages you to become instigators in the research
and design process and to sustain a breadth and depth of enquiry
across a wide range of visual communication activities.

Students need a skills set that will allow them to react to
developments in culture, concepts and technological change. However,
if the boundaries of graphic design are to expand, education must
create opportunities to challenge the status quo.

We aim to provide students with the knowledge needed to survive in
today’s design industry.
