Overview Studying Animation and Graphic Design in combination provides you with an exciting opportunity to develop as an animator and creative designer. Many aspects of these disciplines are complementary, and studying them as Joint Honours is full of possibility. It could lead to an innovative, interdisciplinary final year project that draws all your interests together. Your creative development will take place alongside development of craft and digital skills that are applicable to a wide range of graduate career and employment possibilities. If moving images and visual communication excite your curiosity, these two subject areas in combination could be the right choice for you. This course is a good match for people who prefer learning through doing and if design and media-related employment is your long-term goal. There are regular visits to museums and exhibitions in London, Bristol and live brief related day visits and workshops too. There is also an annual opportunity to take part in a visit to a destination in mainland Europe. Student performance is assessed entirely by course work. Key features
