If you choose to focus on architecture, you will learn everything there is to know about how to create the perfect design for a new building or even an entire city. Courses will focus on the fundamental elements of architecture, safety and materials, environmental impact, as well as lighting, textures and how to create the perfect contrast between materials and colours. It’s not an easy job, as it also involves principles of physics and mathematics, but designing someone’s dream home or a cityscape is a very rewarding job. Studying Graphic Design will focus on teaching you how to use images, text and colors to communicate messages efficiently.
To this end, classes will present basic principles, elements and rules of design. If you choose music, you will study music theory, instruments, perfect harmonies, and numerous musical styles. You will work with other talented musicians, just like yourself. After graduation, you’ll be an expert at playing at least one instrument. A bachelor’s or master’s degree in arts, design and architecture opens up many career opportunities. In addition to the subfields we’ve already mentioned, you can specialize in fashion design, film, photography and media, theatre and dance, user experience design and others.
