About this course

The BFA in Visual Communication presents a comprehensive curriculum, preparing students for the challenges of an increasingly amorphous field. No longer just print and packaging, contemporary visual communications practice has grown to include motion graphics, environmental graphics, interactive and web design and the field continues to evolve rapidly. Based on process and critical thinking and entrenched within a culture of experimentation, this programme creates versatile designers who will be the future innovators of visual communications in Singapore and the world.

To enable students to gain first-hand industry experience, ADM encourages all students to undertake internship. Internships last ten weeks and students will be supervised by the professors and relevant industry practitioners.
