Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design
Communication Design is a studio art program that provides a strong foundation in general design principles, theories, and skills. Its majors are visual thinkers who not only engage in critical analysis and innovation but also have access to the latest state-of-the-art computer software in order to communicate their ideas, images, and messages to targeted audiences. In addition, they gain practical experience by being actively involved in a community of professionals whose practice keeps pace with contemporary society, technology, and culture.
Communication Design graduates will have developed a professional portfolio of personally directed design work in preparation for either graduate studies or a career in advertising agencies, publication or graphic design, exhibitions, interior design or architecture, in-house art and design or interactive, multimedia and web production.
