The course provides knowledge in sustainable and ethical perspectives in graphic design and the student is encouraged to work independently with both practical and written assignments based on various design briefs. The student gets the opportunity to explore and reflect on a variety of concepts such as greenwashing, inclusive and exclusive design, and nudging. The student also need to contextualise his / her work in the course and critically reflect on his / her process and results from a range of different perspectives in a sustainability context. The course thus contains not only practical assignments but also written reports and artist statements.
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.
