Department of Art and Art History
Students in the undergraduate graphic design program learn the skills, techniques, and processes to be a designer in today’s ever-evolving visual communications practice. With projects in print and digital media, identity and branding, image-making, and professional design practices, students will create a foundation of curiosity and life-long growth. Technical exposure, guest speakers, practice-based projects, and numerous other opportunities will prepare students for the wide variety of design challenges throughout their careers.
The MFA program in graphic design focuses on the artist as an agent of visual communication in society. With emphasis on conceptual problem-solving and technical proficiency, graduate students are encouraged to create effective artistic expression in various print, digital, or interactive media. Graphic design theory, history, and professional practices are discussed regularly with faculty. Experimental solutions to student created goals are expected from participants in this program.
