Visual Arts / Communication

If you are artistic, creative, curious, and imaginative, consider Graphics. Graphic Design is the art of arranging image and text to communicate a message. It may be applied in any media such as print, digital media, motion picture, television, and animation. Examples of graphic design include advertising books, magazines, logos, signs, packaging, posters, websites, CDs, DVDs, television graphics, and much more.

This program uses a hands-on approach to teach the principles required to solve graphic design problems. Using industry-standard software and related programs, students develop the ability and confidence to create successful designs.

The Graphic Design program has two main objectives: First, to provide students with theoretical concepts and practical skills utilized in the graphics industry. The second, to prepare students for a possible career in the communications industry.
