No matter the medium, there's always a need for things to look good. In traditional and digital publishing, as well as in a host of other areas, that means a need for people who can create visual solutions for the common - and uncommon - communication problems besetting today's businesses.

The Graphic Design emphasis is a two-year program for students planning to complete a bachelor's degree at a four-year school. Graphic Designers of graphic artists plan, analyze and create visual solutions to communication problems.
