Graphic Design (B.F.A.)

If you have ever tried to persuade someone or explain something in a visual way, you were working with some form of graphic design. Are you intrigued by posters, billboards, menus, ... even t-shirts? You may enjoy gaining the creative methods, processes, and talents involved in creating effective graphic design.

Class projects will help you fill your own unique portfolio. Projects will include logo designs, stationery systems, newsletter and magazine layouts, book covers, posters, film and video graphics, package designs, advertising designs, websites, and more. Typography, layout, illustration, and photography will become technical and creative skills. You will choose which skills are appropriate to produce successful solutions for each project. Some projects will help real clients gain attention. Other projects may gain the attention of prospective employers.
