Set Design lies at the heart of all forms of visual storytelling. It's all about crafting immersive atmospheres and spaces that not only enhance the narrative but also breathe life into the scripts. As a set designer, you'll be working hand-in-hand with directors, producers, and other members of the production team to bring their artistic vision to life.

During the degree, you'll explore a range of topics, from design theory to hands-on applications in various types of productions. Get ready to dive into subjects such as script analysis, technical drawing, and construction techniques.

Or perhaps you'd prefer to become an art director, where you'll have the responsibility of overseeing the overall visual style of a production.
