What you can learn

You'll start with the basics of graphic and web design--areas like color, illustration, and image manipulation--then develop your skills through concept development and implementation courses. After your first year, you’ll focus on Graphic or Web Design, following a more directed course of study.

Choose the Graphic Design concentration and you’ll take a more traditional approach, studying product packaging, posters, art direction, and publication design.

The Web Design concentration focuses on interactive design and development, working across media platforms from mobile devices to desktop computers.
