Graphic Design

As a graphic design major, you'll be part of a challenging and rewarding learning environment. This program will prepare you for the demanding and ever changing creative industry. You'll start by developing a strong foundation of drawing, design theory, art history and visual culture. Then you'll build on that with typography, digital imaging, branding, advertising, mobile design, web design and interactive design.

What You'll Study

The Graphic Design program balances the best of old and new. You'll study theory and traditional practice, along with contemporary digital media. You'll also receive instruction from design professionals in state-of-the-art digital studios. Workstations in the labs give you access to the latest Adobe software, along with scanning and printing facilities.

Practical Experience

To prepare for a diverse job market, you'll develop a professional-level portfolio consisting of a wide variety of design projects.
