The Graphic Communications degree program is devised to provide students with essential skills and knowledge to enter the exciting graphic arts field. Designers must possess a strong sense of creativity, aesthetics, color and detail, as well as a sense of balance, proportion, and professional design. Their creations are often the main media used to successfully market products and services and strongly influence buying decisions in our ever-changing business environment.
Students wishing to achieve a four-year degree will need to meet general education requirements of transfer institutions and pursue the A.A. Degree. This will necessitate a slightly different curriculum so refer to your program advisor for course selection.
Successful graduates may find employment opportunities in the following occupational areas:
- Advertising Layout
- Graphic Design
- Printing Industry
- Publishing Companies
- Sign companies
Upon successful completion of the Graphic Communications curriculum with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher, the student is awarded an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree.
