Graphic Design B.S.
The Graphic Design degree provides students with the creative, technical and communication skills required in one of today''''s fastest growing fields. Students in the program will learn to solve visual communication problems through a comprehensive program of study that incorporates basic design principles, color theory and typegraphy, and advanced production techniques. Since Graphic Design is an aesthetic and technical discipline, students will learn to apply theories and historical research in the creation of visual and written information. Students in the Graphic Design program make use of current technology as an integral part of their visual communication exploration.
