Curriculum

As the professional world of visual media and design requires artists that possess not only route technical aesthetic skills but literary and philosophical learning, the Department of Visual Communication Design’s curriculum draws upon the fields of literature and philosophy to provide students with the concepts to think on their own. At the same time, we have also increased both our software and hardware facilities so that students are able to integrate their visual and graphic design abilities to adapt to the quick-changing digital computing landscape of the future.
