Students who successfully complete the graphic design major will have a solid background in traditional as well as contemporary techniques and methods of graphic design. The curriculum reflects the broad skills students must acquire: a foundation in the history of visual art, strong critical thinking and the occupational skills necessary for success in the field. Students focus their time on two-dimensional media, including design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and digital-related, web-based media. It is recommended that the student in this major also consider completing a minor in Communication, Computer Science or Business to make the program graduate more marketable. Graduates will be prepared to take internships or entry-level positions in graphic design.
