Program Details

The goal of the Visual Communication program is to create a stimulating learning environment for students where they can pursue their specific interest within five areas of professional study: graphic design, multimedia, web design, video and post production and 3-D animation. Design services, publishing, advertising, public relations, computer systems design and related services contain areas of employment for the visual communication graduate. 

The Multimedia Design program introduces students to the different facets of digital media technologies. Instructional topics include exposure to graphic design, web design, animation, and visual effects with video production. Students learn to apply creativity and technical skillsets to produce visual communication across a variety of media types. Additionally, instruction allows students to gain insight into marketing methodologies, user interface design, and technology project management, preparing them for various professional settings.

The Visual Communication Associate of Applied Science degree is awarded for successful completion of 60 credit hours that include a common core of academic and a selection of technical courses. A certificate in Visual Communication is structured to be completed in 2-3 semesters and is designed to provide a core understanding of a specific area.
