The course focuses on graphic design based on social and cultural contexts. The student will work with in-depth theoretical and practical exercises as well as independent projects. The student will explore and work independently with graphic design, although the focus in this course is on a theoretical aspect. The student may also contextualize and critically reflect on graphic design in our society, their own design process and results.


To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
