The role of the graphic designer has quickly changed from producing static visuals to collaborating on dynamic, interactive projects. The strength of design is its ability to respond to the needs of today and to speculate on forms of the future.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design program will require you to explore design methods, processes, materials and language; broaden your understanding of the diversity and scope of design practices; and customize your educational experience through an array of departmental electives aligned with active faculty research. There is a heavy emphasis on collaboration.Our students come to understand their role as shapers and interpreters within culture.
