The Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Arts prepares students to plan, analyze, and create visual solutions to communication challenges. The combination of the study of theory and a mastery of in-studio visual communication methods enables students to get messages across in print, electronic, and film media using a variety of methods such as color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and various print and layout techniques.
Graduates may seek employment in advertising agencies, design studios, publishing houses, or corporate communication departments in entry-level positions as a graphic designer, a production artist for a design staff, a free-lance designer, or as a junior art director.
The major objective of the Information Design emphasis is to ensure competency at complex levels of information design creation, adaption, and management; attention attraction and retention optimization; cross-medium information presentation; universal design for professional design and communication; and ethical information design.
Possible employment areas include entry-level to mid-level positions as technical and professional designers, web and mobile content developers, document managers, editors, social media creators, and entrepreneurs.
