Visual Communication Department at LSC-North Harris

This program provides students with skills needed for careers in commercial art and design, digital publishing, web design, 3D animation, multimedia development, and video and post production. The demand for these skills comes from a variety of industries including advertising, consumer products, education, financial, entertainment, government, legal, manufacturing, medical, petroleum, publishing, transportation, and video production. Why such a broad range industries? Because all companies want and need to communicate with clients, customers, and community. Nothing is more lasting than the emotional impact of visual imagery in printed publications, on the web, for broadcast, etc.

The visual communication program includes six areas of specialization: graphic design, multimedia design, web design, video and post-production, motion graphics, and 3D animation. Students completing the AAS degree or certificates are prepared for entry-level positions.
