The Graphic Design curriculum has a strong focus on design process, typography, image making and strategic thinking. It engages you in the creation of principled, conceptually strong, imaginative and formally sound solutions to many types of problems.
You’ll discover the larger impact of graphic design in the context of cultural and societal issues.
You can pursue studio courses in areas of interest such as:
In fourth year, you develop a focused year-long project, reflecting your personal interest and values. You work closely with practicing graphic designers as well as visiting professionals and complete projects covering a wide range of issues and applications.
You are also introduced to the principles of business and entrepreneurship necessary for success in the field of design. A mandatory laptop program enhances your learning and helps you develop essential skills.
Graduates are qualified to work at design studios, magazines and advertising agencies as junior to intermediate graphic designers. Many go on to open their own businesses.
