The Effect of Idolisation on Public Opinion Manipulated by the Media, Dan Martin, 2000

The Portsmouth Illustration course offers students an experience to question, reflect and analyse their own work and its commentary in the context of the work of other film makers, painters, sculptors, writers etc. We would expect students to develop their intellectual curiosity regarding the very nature of illustration. The BA in Art, Design & Media will provide an educational experience allowing students to understand their own work as a cultural producer in a broad social, political and historical context. The course and staff aim to provide the practical skills necessary to compete in a commercial arena and also the rhetorical skills necessary to promote work for commerce and postgraduate studies. Students are expected to attend daily and they have their own studio space (something of a luxury compared to other schools). Portsmouth Illustration is a relatively new Degree with a growing reputation from which every graduate benefits.

About the projects

The aims across the degree programmes are to produce graduates whose engagement with the cultural practice is well-informed both critically and historically. As part of the submission of the specialist major project for examination students are expected to clearly demonstrate the extent of the research, its methodology and development.

Children's Rights, Mark Gates, 2000
