What You’ll Learn
In the Graphic Design, B.F.A. program, you’ll produce work that demonstrates artistic expression, technical proficiency, and well-informed conceptual ideas.
You’ll take courses in areas from advertising and editorial to information graphics, logos and branding, motion graphics, packaging, typography, and web and interactive design and emerge with a portfolio of work that will demonstrate your professional readiness to future employers.
You’ll gain proficiency with the latest applications and technology—including Adobe Creative Cloud, 3-D printers, and laser cutters—and how to use them in the creation, reproduction, and distribution of visual messages.
Through internships with local agencies and design firms, as well as projects (both individual and collaborative), you’ll prepare to tackle the real-world challenges of being a career-ready graphic designer.
For those interested in even greater career preparation, the School of Architecture and Design offers an accelerated path to the M.F.A. in Digital Art & Design, Graphic Design concentration for undergraduate students who wish to begin their graduate work during the final two years of study for the B.F.A.
