In a world of increasing information, the MA Communicating Complexity course will develop your understanding and skills as a communicator to address our most pressing challenges.

The urge to simplify communication conflicts with the complexity of real issues facing the world.

This course brings together students from design and non-design backgrounds to experiment with the role of communicators in responding to social and global challenges.

MA Communicating Complexity is a creatively led communication design course in a world-leading graphic design programme.

During this course, you will be encouraged to advance experimental approaches to communication.

Project briefs set in collaboration with a range of industries and sectors, as well as with your student cohort, provide a springboard for creative and future-facing approaches.

Course learning outcomes reference UNESCO's learning objectives for achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Innovation in communication design is critical to even the most ambitious ideas and technologies as well as organisations seeking to make an impact at scale.

By foregrounding complexity, this course encourages more inclusive, accessible and culturally resonant inroads into the world's challenges with the ambition to equip you with the ability to bring clarity and context and to engage with communicating complexity.

Applications to this course have now closed.
