The English edition of the Master in Graphic Design consists of two postgraduate programmes: the Postgraduate in Graphic Design Applied to Communication, and the Postgraduate in Graphic Design and Publishing Projects.

The Spanish edition of the Master in Graphic Design has two mentions: a Mention in Publishing Design and the Mention in Graphic Design Applied to Spaces. You can get the first mention by taking the Postgraduate in Graphic Design Applied to Communication and the Postgraduate in Graphic Design and Publishing Projects. You can get the second mention by taking the Postgraduate in Graphic Design Applied to Communication and the Postgraduate Design Applied to Spaces.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Graphic Design Applied to Communication is a programme that provides designers with a more global and multidisciplinary view. It is structured in 9 to 12 practical projects which delve into the contemporary designer’s versatility in front of different needs, surroundings, processes and languages. It also includes 3 intensive workshops.

In addition, the Postgraduate Diploma in Graphic Design and Publishing Projects is a programme specialised in one of the most complex fields of this profession. Moreover, the digital aspect exponentially increases the potential of these editorial projects. It is developed around three big projects at the same time. In a transversal way, with a more intense and brief format, we organise workshops that aim to be aware of how the content defines a publication. The knowledge around the editorial project and all the other supplementary fields (illustration, photography, etc.) are the complements for this course.
