Designing Your Future
Graphic Design shows everywhere, from brands developed for large corporations to patterns created for products sold in stores to the interfaces used on computer programs and apps.

As a Graphic Design student you will first develop core skills using design processes, typography, visual communication, and software tools. You will then apply those skills in the UX/UI Design Emphasis where you will study the way people think and act so you can design apps, programs, and websites that are easy for others to use and that look professional.

Students may initially declare a Graphic Design major but will apply to continue in the major towards the end of their sophomore year after completing a series of core courses. Students who do not continue in the major may complete a minor in Graphic Design or a concentration in Graphic Design that can be used with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree.
