The Master’s course is vocational in orientation and completes the general qualifications courses (Graduate, Higher Graduate and Design Graduate), and those of students who have studied a different specialisation, itinerary or mention from graphic design (design of spaces, product design, fashion or textile design). The contents of the Master’s course are aimed at professionals who use graphic design applications intensively and who feel the need to take an active part in the formalisation, management and/or production processes of projects. In this sense, the Master’s course provides professional competence in the different tasks of responsibility in graphic design processes, be it as self-employed work or as part of agencies and studios offering graphic design services, or also in the graphic design departments of companies and institutions.
