Even at a time when some are predicting the demise of the printed page, graphic designers have never been in higher demand. Graphic design is keeping pace across the new frontiers in communication technologies, evolving into exciting new forms and applications. Students in this program investigate up-to-the-minute tools and trends of the trade, including introductory and advanced web design, while receiving a solid foundation in the traditional practices and concepts of graphic design.
Flexible program on campus or online
The AAS Graphic Design degree can be completed on campus, online or in combination. The on-campus curriculum can be completed in two years or, following the accelerated Fast Track schedule, in two semesters. The online Graphic Design program can be completed from anywhere in the world.
A rigorous program for those who want to launch or advance their career as a graphic designer, the AAS Graphic Design program goes beyond basic technical knowledge to provide a complete design education. Motivated students with no prior arts education will gain the tools to launch a professional career in graphic design. Students familiar with design software will be challenged to take their skills to another level.
The AAS degree is particularly well suited to working professionals seeking to enhance or change careers. Current high school students should consider Parsons' bachelor's degree offerings before applying, as they may present a more effective educational pathway.
