The Graphic Design curriculum has a strong focus on design process, typography, image-making and critical, strategic thinking. It engages you in the creation of principled, conceptually strong, imaginative and formally sound responses to many types of issues.

You'll discover the impact of graphic design in the larger context of culture and society.

You can pursue studio courses in areas of practice such as:

  • Brand strategy
  • Editorial and publication design
  • Interactive communication
  • Motion graphics
  • Packaging design
  • Typeface design
  • Wayfinding and information systems

In fourth year, you'll develop a focused year-long project, reflecting your personal interests and values. You'll work closely with dedicated faculty as well as visiting professionals and critics to complete projects covering a wide range of issues and applications.

You'll also be introduced to the principles of business and professional practice necessary for success in the field of design. A mandatory laptop program enhances your learning and helps you develop essential skills.
