Why graphic design?
The Graphic Design major is intended for students wishing to pursue a career in visual communications, graphic design, publishing, web design, etc. Since most of the information we receive today is visual in nature, graphic design students are trained in the principles and elements and vocabulary of the visual world. Areas of study include: typography, photography, digital imaging, illustration, web design and all of the computer applications necessary to realize these areas such as Adobe Illustrator, Acrobat, Photoshop, and InDesign.
