About this Program
Students learn processes to identify and solve visual communication problems in a variety of contexts, investigate conceptual and technical applications for creating and disseminating visual communication, and integrate print and digital practices to create effective user-driven communication. Project work is grounded in visual concepts, form, and research to use, create and integrate symbols, typography and imagery for applications including system, identity and information design; package design; user experience; motion graphics; web design; and interactive design. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Graphic Design is the degree for entry-level professional practice and growth. The American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA) and The National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) do not recognize two-year degrees or BA, BS, or BFA degrees in other majors as adequate preparation for graphic design professionals even though they may contain courses in graphic design or visual communication. National and state projections regarding employment related to graphic design are for those with four-year degrees.
