Graphic design is a vital field of professional art practice that gives shape to culture through a wide range of print and digital media.
The graphic design program offers a distinctive education in the art and practice of print and digitally based graphic design and experimental publishing and encourages students to see the field as an open frame whose applications can be commercial, political, educational, literary, subversive, personal, and experimental.
We prepare students for the range of options in the field by providing a hands-on studio environment with emphasis on the marriage of formal and conceptual skills.
You’ll learn to solve visual communication problems through critical thinking and the use of words, symbols, and images in two, three, and four dimensions.
Experienced professional faculty members help students find their own voice and approach to design in a facility that encourages experimentation in an array of methodologies and technologies.
