Learn from skilled creative specialists with years of industry experience

Associate in Applied Science
in Graphic Design

The complexity of today’s technology requires precise communications. The function of the graphic designer is to apply creative skill and technical knowledge to attract and influence the consumer through visual stimulation. These responsibilities require a thorough knowledge of both conventional and electronic applications for design, layout and production. The ability to be a creative problem solver is extremely important for today’s graphic designer. 

Visual media communicators form the nucleus of the broadest field of applied arts, whether it is called graphic design, commercial art or visual communications. To be a graphic designer requires knowledge and skills in drawing, design, typography, computer and mechanical production.

Recent graduates have attained recognition as layout artists, designers, illustrators and art directors with leading advertising agencies, industrial graphic departments and publishers.

Graduates with experience can establish successful and satisfying careers as graphic designers, art directors and creative directors for advertising agencies and design studios, or freelance designers.
