Bachelor in Graphic Design

General

Program Description

In a world in which visual culture invades our daily life, the role of the graphic designer is consolidated as one of the cornerstones of communication in a multimedia and digitalized environment. Be it in projects of artistic nature or focused on the entrepreneurial world, the graphic designer must have the tools and strategies necessary to develop a voice of his or her own, adaptable to different ends and mediums.

The Graphic Design Degree will provide you with the needed training in order to navigate, from the analogical to the digital, through a series of languages that go from illustration and serigraphy to branding and interface design, allowing you to be in contact with different publics through different platforms.

In this outlook, aspects of graphic design such as form and the elements of a composition can never be untied from the environment in which design is produced and consumed.
