ART, DESIGN AND MEDIA
Studying Art, Design and Media points you to hundreds of different career possibilities in a wide range of areas.
Graphics, illustration, advertising, photography, fashion, ceramics, CAD technician, animation, television, journalism, film-making, painting, sculpting and printmaking to name but a few.
These areas touch almost every aspect of our lives, from the clothes that we wear and the cars that we drive, to the images that we see in magazines, newspapers, on the TV and in films.
A strong art, design and media education will not only prepare you for a career in these stimulating and forward looking industries, but also give those seeking careers in other areas a useful set of skills to help them succeed in our increasingly visual culture.
Art, Design and Media subjects are about creative thinking and acquiring the right skills to communicate ideas and concepts. This may be through traditional hand-working techniques or use of the latest computer technology.
There are many new and exciting opportunities to study at higher education level in these areas and success at AS/A-level or National Diploma could be your first step to a choice of innovative areas of specialisation.
