Combining traditional studio skills with Macintosh computers and the current industry standard software Adobe Creative Suite, you will be groomed in letter and type design, layout and art preparation, and computer generated solutions to graphic design challenges.
Students graduating with this major can move directly into employment in the advertising, publishing and illustration fields. Alternately, you may wish to further specialize by pursuing an advanced degree.
