Graphic design is everywhere. You see it on your computer screen, in your environment, even in your refrigerator. Our program produces creative, informed, contemplative, visually astute designers able to grow within a continually evolving, dynamic profession. The program supports the creative process with a carefully sequenced multiform curriculum emphasizing the fundamentals of design through concept development, generative sketching, prototyping, image making, typography, digital technology, time-based design, interactive media and web design. Graphic Designers are digital artists who have grown beyond two-dimensional design and make their mark with a broad spectrum of visual communication applications encompassing print, branding, motion graphics, packaging, environmental graphics, mobile apps and web-based media. The paid internship program, an experiential learning opportunity, supports our career-focused education that prepares graduates to enter the design profession with skills to meet the challenges and demands of an exciting, multi-faceted, career utilizing traditional, new and evolving media.
