Graphic design leads the international social force for change and development. Demand has increased for products that solve problems while also offering an engaging or rewarding experience.

When you study design at the University of Newcastle, you will be engaging with experts within the field of graphic design and using advanced equipment while learning the needs of businesses, professions and the creative industries.

Mass media, the internet, film and television, advertising, publishing and industry all need promotional material sourced from the creative skills of a designer.

Think of the offerings from Apple, the graphics and animation found in console games and in blockbuster Hollywood movies, or the sophisticated and interactive design of certain websites. All of these have had to be carefully researched to inform the final design.

As a visual communicator you will develop knowledge of the power of graphic information to influence the public and how design thinking can be used to provide creative solutions in a range of applications.

Offered through the Faculty of Science and Information Technology, the Bachelor of Visual Communication Design provides experience across a variety of design disciplines and you will graduate with a professional portfolio of work to showcase your skills to potential employers.
