digital design & graphics
The purpose of the Digital Design & Graphics (formerly Graphic Communications) program is to prepare students for professional employment in the quickly growing field of digital design. The program teaches skill sets and problem solving that directly relates to the needs of the marketplace. This allows students to learn how to communicate ideas with any digital medium with clarity of thought and conceptual design.
The key to success in this profession is the development of cross-curricula skill sets due to the convergence of digital media. The convergence of digital media is the cross-integration of multiple digital disciplines and technologies. Design, photography, web design, audio and video production have become so integrated that soon one name will represent them all.
The Digital Design Program will enable students, through individual and collaborative exploration, learn to communicate effectively, create innovative visual design concepts, and develop a balanced digital design skill set demanded by the industry of today and the future.
