Are you interested in creating and applying your own graphical language across subject areas as diverse as type design, illustration, design for print and web, service design, and design for social impact? If so, our MA Visual Communication degree is for you.

In an age of information overload, visual communication professionals have never been more in demand. Designed to equip you with the skills you need for a professional career in the creative industries or digital marketing sector, this master’s in visual communication is focused on industry experience, interdisciplinary collaboration and self-initiated research.

What’s more, You will be studying at the heart of the campus in New Adelphi building, home to all Art, Design and Creative Technology subjects, one of the North West’s largest creative hubs, with easy access to creative networking opportunities. You’ll also be involved in working on live projects throughout your course, working with key cultural organisations across the cities of Salford and Greater Manchester, which include, amongst others, The Center for Chinese Contemporary Art, Hotbed Press, Islington Mill, Castlefield Gallery, Salford Museum and Art Gallery, Artworks, Mark Devereux Projects, Textbook Studios & Salford Art Collection Dr Me and Magma Books.

  • Develop your professional skills in visual communication by combining theory with practical experience.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to gain real-world experience through industry placements, interdisciplinary collaborative practice and freelance projects with a range of cultural organisations.
  • Build a strong portfolio of applied practical and theoretical work that can be used to evidence your skills and establish your reputation in the industry.


As a postgraduate student at Salford, you’ll be studying for one of the only visual communication masters in the UK that focuses on equipping you with the hands-on experience you need to take your career to the next level. Throughout your course you’ll have established professional links with art and design networks across the region, meaning you’ll already have a place in the creative community.

Many of our recent graduates have gone on to secure professional roles in animating, graphic designing and advertising. Others have pursued careers in teaching, art directing, web programming and photography. So as a master of arts in visual communication design, the possibilities really are endless.
