Program Overview

The rich background of our liberal arts core encourages curiosity about the work and engages students in critical thinking and problem solving.  Our graphic design program provides theoretical understanding of design principles and technical skills required of a professional designer.  

Students develop promotional materials for many community organizations which results in a heightened sense of civic responsibility.  A graphic design internship is also required exposing students to a broad range of cultural experiences.  At the completion of the program students are fully prepared to compete and succeed in the design industry.
