The Graphic Design program will prepare students to enter the professional practice of design. Today’s graphic designers need a broad knowledge base that includes, but is not restricted to, world history, art history, design history, and popular culture and trends. Graphic designers must be familiar with a variety of methods, materials, and techniques that span from traditional, to non traditional, to digital. Graphic design provides multilayered synergistic opportunities beyond print design alone. A graphic designer has multiple creative outlets such as: environmental design, industrial design, web design, and print design. Students will need to master approaching creativity within structure and restriction. Necessary skills will range from ideation to computer applications to physical model constructions. Creativity, problem solving, and a committed and disciplined approach help graduates thrive in this field. Students will be assisted by instructors in an environment that promotes individual creativity in concert with the highest principles and moral values.
