Every day you are bombarded by graphic design messages. Whether they take the form of memorable advertisements or illustrations in a book, graphic arts are all around you.
Our Graphic Arts courses are rooted in practice rather than theory. At the centre of the department is our ‘Design Studio’, a real-life working environment. Undergraduates work on ‘live’ and realistic briefs, with industry standard deadlines, as well as liaising with clients and staff to underpin professional learning. These courses will help develop confidence and competence to communicate design solutions, through both print-based and new media graphic disciplines.
Personal and professional development will provide opportunities for students to develop a range of skills, techniques and attributes essential for successful performance in a working life environment.

“We were pleased to set the undergraduates a ‘live brief’ and they demonstrated high levels of competence throughout the project. They’re learning good research and design development skills on the degree programme at the Hugh Baird University Centre and it was interesting to see how they communicated their concepts during the final presentations.”
Alex Parry, Graphic Arts - Foundation Degree (FdA)
"The best thing about being here is the environment and certainly the new University Centre. I have worked on a few live briefs that have been very exciting; liaising and communicating with external clients from pitch level to final production of the brief."
