The curriculum of the Master course is influenced by the tradition of Swiss Graphic Design and the current academic perspective and standards of the Visual Communication Institute / The Basel School of Design at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design.

You will be given the opportunity to be at the cutting edge of discourse concerning image theory and design-oriented research as well as media technology. Through project oriented design work you will deepen your process-oriented design skills, and enhance your analytical competence in image theory and the media sciences.

Furthermore, the program is offering you a variety of opportunities, such as international internships, studying in a rich foreign cultural environment, and an international group of students and professors, who are involved in the current discussions of the internationally oriented design practice and its issues of design research.
