The department of Art and Communication currently offers an exciting interdisciplinary mix of art and design courses. Our approach builds on the potential for contemporary, experimental, commercial and trans-disciplinary practices. The department is committed to promoting high quality learning which reflects contemporary knowledge and understanding related to studio practice, theoretical contexts, forms of public display and industry.
Our focus on interdisciplinarity encourages a greater range of transferable skills for employment as the less single-medium focused a practically based course is the greater the range of transferable skills students acquire to apply within a diverse world of art, design and culture. The department has a reputation for stimulating progressive art and design practice combined with promoting live exposure and exchange with national and global creative industries.
