Communication Design programs

Communication Design is at the leading edge of making sense of the world.

We work with people to bring new ideas to the surface through practice-based research, which we do by visualising complex situations, mapping the relationships between people and the world, and crafting ways to communicate these new knowledges in compelling ways. We face complexity with intellectual curiosity, drawing on multiple cultural experiences to give form to new futures.

About our programs

Our design programs are offered in undergraduate and postgraduate sectors. 

In your undergraduate degree you will learn to apply, reflect, examine, and articulate design skills and practice to your chosen communities of practice and establish yourself upon graduation as a new contributor to your chosen field through thoughtful projects and reflection. Major areas of study include branding, publication, user experience, typography, strategic design, and service design. 

In postgraduate programs you develop your established practice with research-led enquiry into and through design. Situated at the edge of current practice, in partnership with industry and key practitioners in the field. Individual research projects engage students to exemplify their research-based design thinking in a fully-fledged critical design project.
