About the Programme

Over the years methods of communication have undergone many significant changes. With time and the development of technology, came the flood of information that can overload the world. In times like these, skilled creators as well as aware educators, and inquisitive analysts are a necessary part of all communities. Visual Communication consist of three paths blended in one, creating a unique programme in the visual communication field. Students will have an opportunity to delve into three domains: Art, Education, and Communication, with a strong emphasis on visual arts. In the era of abundance of images and narratives there is a constant need for sound inquiry in the visual cultures as well as good artistry in the field.

The Structure of the Programme

The Visual Arts Master’s Programme is based on the subjects that are centred on creative skills. Graphic design, printmaking, drawing and illustration will help students gain abilities necessary  in their future career. The artistic craftsmanship, especially in digital environments is supplemented by the emphasis on understanding and interpretation of contemporary art and artworks. This enables our students to become informed, conscious and critical art educators. Last, but not least, the analytical skills in understanding the communication processes (semiotics, semantics rethorics) are developed as well as the means to understand the broader context of society and culture. We shape creators, educators and communicators to work either in the art institutions or culture industries or even in marketing and advertising.
