The 21st century communication designer is one who not only develops a message content for printed or electronic media, with emphasis on aesthetics in media, but also has the ability to create new media channels to ensure the message reaches its target audience.

This programme aims to nurture passionate, creative thinkers who have a good understanding of key communication and information design concepts towards the application of these to new design trends and projects. It builds on and values the understanding of historical and contextual referencing and the capability to source for original materials through research. You will be engaging with traditional areas of communication as well as having access to cutting edge design, technology, software and digital media. From a broader perspective, you will be encouraged to not only develop your individual creative skills, but also your teamwork and networking skills through participation in creative collaboration teams.

On successful completion of the programme, the graduates will also be awarded with a degree from Lancaster University. They will be awarded two certificates, making them graduates of both Sunway University and Lancaster University.
