For over thirty years, the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication has been the only one of its kind in Britain.
Offering a unique approach to design through a combination of practice, theory and history, our teaching is augmented by funding through CETL and our excellent special collections and archives.
The high standard and diversity of research in the department are recognized by our result in RAE 2008, with 80 per cent of our research being rated world-leading or internationally excellent. They are also reflected in our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as in works published by the Department, such as Typography Papers.
We also have a Design & Print Studio that not only provides our students with hands-on experience but which also acts as the printing facility for the University.
