    I am currently doing Human Resource management and Marketing at university but after I finish could I do a masters in graphic design even though I haven’t really done any related subject or would I need a degree in Graphic design degree in order to pursue it.

    Thanks

    I believe you can. Most of the time, you can generally switch subjects from Undergraduate to Postgraduate. The University will more than likely want to see elements of your work in that area though, to see your commitment and such.

    Why don't you look at some uni websites to see what they say?

    This one for example requires either an "appropriate" degree or at least 3 years work experience: http://www.mdx.ac.uk/courses/postgra...design_ma.aspx

    These have similar requirements and also want a portfolio:

    http://www.anglia.ac.uk/ruskin/en/ho...ypography.html

    This one doesn't seem too fussed about degree subject but wants a portfolio:
    http://www.uclan.ac.uk/information/c...hic_design.php


    So on a quick google search it looks as though you will not be able to go directly from what you are doing to an MA in graphic design, unless you've managed to build up a portfolio.
