Module overview

This module is designed to provide you with knowledge of the historical and contextual development of graphic communication across the twentieth century. It introduces key ideas and concepts that will inform your practical work through an examination of the social, political and cultural debates within historical and critical contexts. Through a range of relevant discussions, you will be introduced to methods and approaches that will inspire you to challenge the work of others and to form critical and contextual awareness to evaluate and apply to your own practice. Alongside you will explore and create practical outcomes that are informed by and integrated with theory. As such you will obtain awareness of the inter-relationship between practice and theory and how they actively influence each other. You will also be introduced to the importance of academic integrity and to the academic conventions that you will utilise during the rest of the programme.
