Undergraduate degree
in Graphic Design

Course list

Awakening your curiosity & developing your imagination

The first year covers a wide range of technical and cultural learning, designed to nourish students’ creativity.

Exploring tools and building know-how

The students are immersed in the learning experience, developing their skills through the project experiences. To enable them to experiment with a more global approach, space and product design courses are added to the visual communication modules.

The choice of elective modules and project workshops focused on visual communication, graphic design and digital technology, enables each student to create their own profile as a specialist designer, through the courses they choose.

Designing an approach and getting involved

Following a 4-6 month internship, students work together on real life scenarios, in a multi-disciplinary team where they develop their personal degree project.
