Visual Culture Taster Day

Join us for an afternoon in NCAD. We want to tell you about our BA Visual Culture. Get chance to participate in a taster lecture, to meet staff and students and to tour NCAD's Historic Campus in the heart of the city.

The BA in Visual Culture is a wide-ranging field of study, focusing on the images and objects which have made up our world from the early nineteenth century to the present day. It regards popular culture – like fashion, advertising and cinema – as being just as meaningful and significant as the works of celebrated artists, designers and architects. At NCAD you can decide where your focus in Visual Culture lies.
