The Master in Graphic Design lays out the fundamentals, methodologies and tools that apply to this specific field of design, equipping students with management skills and preparing them to think up and adapt graphic and communication solutions for a wide variety of needs.

In a context where we are seeing more and more communication channels under constant transformation, the role of graphic designers is crucial. Armed with a critical mind and multidisciplinary approach, as well as specific know-how from a variety of disciplines, these designers are able to provide a range of solutions to the market’s graphic needs and visual communication requirements.
