 Graphic Design

Graphic Design at Boston College is a practical, hands-on subject that utilises our fully equipped design workshops, which included Apple Mac suites, Art Studios, a professional TV studio and Photography facilities.

You will learn from lecturers that have worked in creative roles in the Graphic Design industry, enabling them to share their own experiences and knowledge with you.

During the course there are extra opportunities to enhance your skills by displaying your work in a professional exhibition that is open to the general public and going on inspirational trips.
You will study areas such as, advertising campaigns, logos & digital design concepts, graphic novels/illustration, print production and core graphics concepts such as typography and digital manipulation.

Your own interests will directly impact the type of projects you work on and the finished concepts you produce.

You will also work closely with local companies to produce ‘Live Briefs’ relating to industry.
"You are given the freedom to interpret a project in your own way and it gives you the chance to show your personality in different ways."

"We work on live briefs involving real companies."

"I feel safe in this environment and part of something."
