This course focus on change, visual power and responsibility in visual communication. Students explore and reflect on a number of movements in society and how these movements communicate their message with visual communication. The students work with a critical graphic design project. The students also get an in-depth knowledge of semiotics, stylistic approaches and the similarities and differences between propaganda and advertising – the history, present and future. The course ends with an interdisciplinary project with the theme of change, where the student captures an in-depth knowledge and ability to work creatively in groups with a project of high complexity.
In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.
The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
