Graphic Design is the design of things people read. This can come in the way of newspapers, web pages, magazines, advertisements, posters, billboards, brochures, fliers, and much, much more. Graphic design has the power to communicate ideas, inspire emotion, and transform the globe around us by reaching a mass audience. When the student learns to connect the creative skills related to art and design to technology - these creative ideas can become reality. In addition, it opens the door to a wide range of employment opportunities such as an advertising designer, art director, environmental graphic designer, graphic designer, type designer, illustrator, and magazine/editorial designer, multimedia designer, web page designer and many others.

This is a career program designed to enable students to seek employment at the program's completion. Students must achieve a "C" or better in the required Multimedia Technology courses. All credits are transferable to the Multimedia Technology associate degree program if the student wishes to pursue further studies.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for a Certificate in Graphic Design.
