Why do a CAS in Digital Communication Environments?

The topics offered in Digital Communication Environments – Digital Media, Graphic Design, Typography and Design Research – can be put together to create a personalised continuing education programme. This CAS has a modular structure and allows participants to tailor the continuing education programme to meet their individual needs.
