University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
We live in an image-led and image-conscious society, where we are expected to decipher visual cues designed to sell, to celebrate and to represent. Studying Visual Culture enables you to explore these forms of visual communication and their history, equipping you with a critical understanding of the society in which we live. Addressing art, culture and media, the course considers the broad spectrum of visual creativity that permeates contemporary life. You will explore everything from the history and theory of painting and sculpture to print, photography, film, advertising and fashion, developing your skills in written, visual and verbal presentation and research. Small group teaching encourages discussion in an environment where every student can be heard. Brighton is an ideal location to study the visual, offering a rich history of popular culture.
