GRAPHIC DESIGN - Degree Requirements

Scholarships  |  Careers

All Art + Design degree programs begin with foundation courses in the areas of drawing, art history, color theory and two-dimensional and three-dimensional design. The foundation helps students establish essential visual, conceptual and technical skills. A low faculty-to-student ratio in the Art + Design Department (enrollment in most art courses is limited to 12 students) means students receive individualized instruction and have a one-on-one relationship with the faculty.
