Graphic design is a form of visual communication vital to every industry and institution. Graphic designers create images and typography for digital and print media as well as computer-generated works of art. The interdisciplinary curriculum combines courses in Fine Arts, Communications, and Creative Writing that encourage experimentation with corporate, commercial, and personal applications of graphic expression. Students learn to design with up-to-date software and study copyright and infringement laws. Opportunities for internships are available. In the capstone course students produce a presentation portfolio suitable for job interviews. The 20-credit minor can expand the skill set of students in Communications, Marketing, Computer Science, Art Education, and Fine Arts or build a foundation for a career as a graphic designer.

For further information, contact the Graphic Design Minor Advisor, Dr. Patricia Likos Ricci, Department of Fine and Performing Arts.
