Students who complete Design courses will apply design principles, concepts, and technologies to create innovative messaging and visual solutions. Text and images will be transformed into compelling messaging and visual storytelling through the most effective media available, from motion graphics and interactive communication to spatial applications such as environmental graphics, way-finding systems, 3D commercial graphics and branded environments. Throughout these courses, students will also explore the history, criticism, and business of communication design.

The Design program prepares students for freelance careers and/or entry-level positions in the design market, as well as for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The program emphasizes the basic skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to implement creative, technical, and aesthetic solutions into print and publication design; web and interface design; motion graphics and animation, branding, identity, and type design.
