The communication design course is oriented toward professional practice. The essential skills are design, the purposeful integration of different design elements, and the use of the different media involved in way that suits the specific requirements of the task. In line with Folkwang tradition, students are equipped to develop an understanding of design that includes art media.
The necessary knowledge, skills and methods for conception, design and realization are communicated in a way that equips students to do both artistic/design work and scholarly work, and also to organize their knowledge in a critical way. Students are encouraged to recognize the social nature of design and to be aware of responsibility in their work.
