Graphic Design provides up-to-date artistic training in the technology, techniques, and philosophy of graphic design, which plays a vital role in the process of presenting ideas, information, products, and services in an expanding global economy.

This is a balanced program of art instruction and academic courses designed to develop the technical skills and knowledge essential to professional competence, and to encourage creativity, imagination, and a sense of aesthetic discrimination. Practical work experience is provided through field placement in the graphic communications industry.

Assignments in design, illustration, and computer graphics may require a considerable amount of time outside of regular class hours.
