You will create projects for assignments in which no two submissions are alike—from print publishing to package design to interface design and more. In addition to art and design skills, you will also have courses in real-world topics such as digital publishing, interactive media design, graphic web design, and how to give and receive work critique, as well as courses focusing on communication skills, popular culture, and how to prepare yourself for your first step into the design industry.
Bachelor's Objective Our goal is to provide you with the focused knowledge and understanding of graphic-arts production needed for you to qualify for entry-level industry positions in graphic-arts production, including graphic designers, media designers, web designers, digital-image processors, and art directors. Additional skills acquired in media integration, advertising, and branding will broaden your opportunities for a variety of positions in the industry. In addition to technical proficiency and creative development, your education will help you develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that contribute to lifelong learning, providing you with the tools needed to help you sustain a long and productive professional career in the entertainment and media industries.
