Module overview

This module focuses on employability and will allow you to research key industry practitioners, their methods of working and encourage you to analyse and define an area of the creative industries which you feel will become relatable to your future career. It will offer the opportunity to engage with career focussed concepts, issues and skills around employability within your specialist or interdisciplinary practice and within a community of learning.

The module is placed at a critical juncture for thinking and planning your future career as you are about to undertake your final, self-initiated project of this academic year. It will enhance your ability to position yourself conceptually and visually within your chosen field of practice. You will explore, then survey a critical issue within a changing graphic communication landscape, alongside the implications that this has for own employability. The module concludes with a written and visual interpretation of your chosen professional, employability critical issue.
