The Graphic Design certificate gives students the basic skills they will need to enter the workforce or begin developing an individual practice as a graphic designer.
Students will begin by learning how to work with a variety of software, content and formats to explore creative, conceptual, and visual communication solutions that can be experienced in an effective way by individuals or groups of people.
Some of the skill sets that will be developed are design processes that include research, analysis, concepting, sketching, comping, production, and fulfillment for both print and digital media. In addition to building skills students will begin to develop and present a portfolio that demonstrates the students design ability. This program also places an emphasis on helping students gain the resources and awareness of how, and when to advance their skills based on industry expansion, and the changing demands placed on a graphic designer.
Note: Most credits earned in this certificate program can be applied toward the Fine Arts-Associate of Fine Arts degree in the Art, Art History & Design.
The Fine Arts Program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD)
