Graphic Design

Hands-on experience is a cornerstone of our Graphic Design program.  The program is designed to start with foundational knowledge and skill-building in the classroom.  From there you will build your portfolio and gain real-world experience through an internship or a guided project.  Students will learn where to find clients, how to meet clients’ needs, and how to leverage industry-standard software and technology.

By the time you graduate you will be able to:

  • Navigate the Adobe Creative Suite including programs like Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator
  • Develop an initial concept into an eloquent graphic solution
  • Work with clients to meet their individual needs.

Graphic Design could be the right fit for you if you:

  • Are interested in digital art
  • Enjoy coming up with creative, visual messaging
  • Want to work in a creative field with lots of potential for growth
