Majors & Minors (Undergraduate)

Graphic Design (Concentration)

A concentration in graphic design addresses the needs and wishes of students from other majors to study and develop a basic understanding of graphic design.

It is extremely important for art students to expose themselves to new ways of thinking and seeing in order to be competitive and connected.

Program Overview

There is an obvious and existing affinity between illustration and graphic design departments, but there has been a growing interest in the major and specific courses offered by the Graphic Design Department from students in GFA, photography, interactive media, printmaking, video, fiber, and environmental design. For example, many fiber students are very interested in understanding the power of branding, just as graphic design students are interested in fabric and surface pattern.

Courses outlined in the graphic design concentration will offer students a basic understanding of design processes, principles, and typography. It is important, but not essential, that students declare this concentration in the first semester of the sophomore year.
