More information 


The Graphic Design and Animation BA is for students who can capture reality as they see it and transform it into textures, shapes, patterns, and the sensible distribution of colors via technology. We are looking for students who can take the raw matter of reality and give it aesthetic order.

Now, more than ever, our reality is one rich in visual images, thanks in large part to increasing tech progress and ever-shifting methods of communication. Several industries are opening new doors for visually creative artists. This is why even if, thus far, you have relied only on traditional methods to express your artistic style, our program will help you transition to the latest technologies so that you might express your creativity equally effectively.

Programme structure

In their first and to some extent their second years, students will focus on completion of the University’s General Education Program (42 US / 84 ECTS credits), with the introduction of specialized courses in language and culture. In the third and fourth years, students will focus increasingly on topics relevant to their major. To earn a Bachelor’s degree, students must satisfactorily complete at least 120 US / 240 ECTS credits, fulfill all the requirements for the Graphic Design and Animation degree, and achieve a CGPA of 2.00 or higher.

The degree is designed to be completed in four years, assuming students make satisfactory progress toward the degree and do not interrupt their study. Details about leave of absence, standards of progress, and maximum time allowed to complete course can be found in the American University of Malta’s Catalog.
