Bachelor’s Degree

Communication Design and Audiovisual

T

he degree of “licenciado” (bachelor) is generally awarded to those students that demonstrate knowledge and understanding in a particular area of training, know how to apply and understand the acquired knowledge, ability to solve problems, building and justifying their own arguments, ability to handle information and communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions.

Integrated in a polytechnic higher education institution that promotes the creation, transmission and dissemination of culture and knowledge of a professional nature, through the articulation of study, teaching, targeted research and experimental development, the degree in Communication Design and Audiovisual Production aims to train professionals for the labour market, capable of identifying, analysing and solving communication problems.

The training also encourages the continuation of studies for a second cycle in Graphic Design or Audiovisual Production for New Media.

 

The degree in Communication Design and Audiovisual Production appeared in 1999 with the designation of Bietapic Degree in Arts of Image (3 years Baccalaureate + 2 years Degree), with the branches of Graphic Design and Multimedia and Audiovisual Design. In 2007, the cycle of studies was reorganized in accordance with the Bologna process, adopting the designation of Degree in Communication Design and Audiovisual Production.

The cycle of studies is structured in six semesters, three curricular years, the first of basic training, the second theoretical-practical and the third eminently practical year, in a clear attempt to base, consolidate and apply knowledge and skills in communication design, more specifically in the areas of graphic design, multimedia and audiovisuals.
