Our Visual Communication Design Study Program

VCD study program is held based on the Decree of the Directorate General of Higher Education No. 3299/D/T/K-III/2009 on August 28, 2009, with a Bachelor level education program. The VCD program began accepting and administering the first batch of students in the odd semester of the 2007/2008 academic year. The VCD study program is accredited A based on the National Accreditation Board Decree number 3266/SK/ BAN-PT/Akred/S/XII/2016 with a validity period until December 27, 2021.

Initially, there were 4 majors in the VCD-SP; Graphic Design, Interactive Media Design, Cinematography, and Animation. In 2016, Digital Cinematography and Animation Major separated from the VCD-SP and became their own study program called a Film study program following the Faculty development plan. Therefore the basis of the curriculum component formed with 4 majors is less relevant for the two majors remaining in VCD-SP (Graphic Design, and Interactive Media Design). Following the event of separation, an initial evaluation team of the VCD study program was formed by the Head of VCD-SP 2015 with assignment task No. 15/T/Head of Study Program-DKV/VIII / 2015. Based on all stages of evaluation and minutes that have been carried out by the evaluation team, a curriculum team then formed by the Dean of the Faculty of Art and Design with assignment task No: 056/T/Dean-FSD/X/2015 to design a new curriculum implemented in the 2018/2019 academic year. This new curriculum changes two majors remaining into Visual Brand Design and Interaction Design.

Following the event of separation, an initial evaluation team of the VCD program was formed by the Head of VCD program in 2015 with assignment task No. 15/T/Head of Study Program-DKV/VIII / 2015 to establish the new VCD department and curricula. The VCD program vision and mission is derived from the University and Faculty as described on our Vision & Mission page.
