Graphic designers are ambassadors of meaning. They define commercial identity through trademarks and logos. They broker understanding across language barriers. They clarify the messages of authors, advertisers, organizations, and the media with type, image, and space.
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 the Graphic Design degree 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.
The 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 Graphic Design degree 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.
