Illustration (BA)

The first-cycle study programme in Visual Communication Design covers the areas of Photography, Graphic Design and Illustration. Through seminar assignments, studio work and lectures the students acquire the basic knowledge applicable in various practical fields: printed media, websites, photography, illustration. After the general first year the study becomes specialised in individual areas that can later be upgraded at the Master’s level. The study programme encourages you to critically evaluate the results of design work and brings you in touch, through different projects, with the working environment.

During this first-cycle study, students of Illustration develop their visual-thinking skills necessary for independent work in all the areas of public life, in which illustration is a means of communication or it is an important part of a visual-communication unit. In the first study year, students acquire general knowledge that is later built up through several graded levels until the sixth semester. In the last semester students complete their studies with a demanding project demonstrating complex knowledge in the area of illustration, supported with a detailed analysis of the topic.
