Visual Communication & Graphic Design| Major

An interdisciplinary studio art program in computer mediated art and design.

Degree Awarded: Bachelor of Art, Bachelor of Fine Art

The Visual Communication and Graphic Design (VCGD) curriculum has a strong focus on design process, typography, image-making and critical, strategic thinking.  Classes engage you in the creation of principled, conceptually strong, imaginative, and formally sound responses to many types of issues. The production of printed materials such as books, brochures, packaging, and posters is also supported in visual communication design. We emphasize creative growth through intense exploration of a wide range of media, coupled with training on the latest professional software. Experience opportunities ranging from designing for pre- press to usability design and testing for interactive media. Students' work will be reviewed during their junior year. At this time, it will be determined if the students' work reflects strong design skills to graduate with a BFA in their senior year. Those students portfolios that do not pass the junior review will graduate with the BA in VCGD.
