Art & Design – Graphic Design Concentration

The Graphic Design concentration addresses both experimental and traditional design practices. This program addresses digital, history, portfolio, theory, and seminar courses in a format that allows the student to apply skills in and out of the classroom. Specifically, students develop foundation design skills coupled with internships in the graphic design industry. Ideally, upon completion of the program students will hold a skill-set that prepares them for careers as a design professional in print and web-based media.
